Rare unique storyline
24 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'll be brief on this one, it's just over a middle of the road film but absolutely worth one turn. Mira Sorvino does a fine job as the protagonist, well, one of 3 in the story. Shane West takes a role that would appear simple to play and adds subtlety to it that it would have fallen flat had he not.Tony Curren as a dark angel of sorts is delightfully wicked, but the guy from "Weeds" is completely milk-toast and someone we're meant to admire as a good man comes off as a "girly-man", spineless and one dimensional. It's billed essentially as a love story/ghost tale and his inability to tow the line takes the love story off the table and we were left with the ghost tale, however, Curren and Shane West make certain that aspect of the film saves the movie. It was a nice way to spend 90 min
