Storyline

Small-town detective Noah Cordin is called to solve a juvenile homicide that occurred during a home burglary in his affluent town of Hilliard. The dead boy's mother, Allison Connor, is a member of the Meskada County Board of Commissioners, and a powerful woman in Hilliard. The entire township of Caswell rallies together in solidarity - not to support her and Detective Cordin's efforts to find the killers (who appear to have come from Caswell) but to keep the way clear for a new business with 500 jobs coming to town.

Did You Know?

Goofs

Meskada County is supposedly a fictitious county in a Midwestern U.S. state (probably bordering Ohio), yet an apology letter addressed to the fictitious city of Hilliard incorrectly cites a Canadian province abbreviation (MB for Manitoba) with the fictitious U.S. postal code 21243. Even if the movie were theoretically set in Manitoba, the postal code format is wrong for a Canadian province--U.S. ZIP codes are generally 5 digits (like the 21243 example), whereas Canadian postal codes are 6 alphanumeric characters (example: one of Winnipeg, MB's postal codes is R2C 1G6).

This film has you tense and guessing all the way through
15 October 2011 | by See all my reviews

Quite frankly, I did not expect much of this film, particularly after I saw a score of 5.0 on IMDb.

Throughout the film you keep asking yourself "where is this going to" and each time, as the film goes on, you get more of a surprise and the tension increases a notch.

Throughout the film I kept thinking "Winter's Bone". This film reminds me a lot of "Winter's Bone", and they were both made in 2010, but at the same time this film is quite different, but still about small town and small community secrets all the same.

The acting is top class, and the direction flawless. No film stars on show but they're not needed - this is top class entertainment from little known actors (not for long) and it is top direction too.

Watch it - you won't regret it.
