Intense family drama
25 July 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's impossible to write of this film without giving away the plot. A mysterious young lady arrives at a vineyard farm house after several incidents that show she is a tough cookie. Like letting a hitchhiker screw her and then ditching him beside the highway and then engaging in a most improbable drinking bout with some guys in a bar. Afterward she kisses one of the guys who it will be revealed is her step-brother Then she smashes her car into a tree to give her an excuse to ask the residents in the farm house to let her spend the night. The family consists of a couple and their two teenage children. The mother discovers the guest is using a false name by checking online and goes through her bag on the sly. She discovers the real identity of her guest but waits for the young lady to reveal her intentions. So it becomes a cat and mouse game between the two that gradually enfolds in a series of emotional exchanges. I will leave it at that after leaving one clue above. It's a fine film with excellent performance from all the cast.
