Ouch! Shamefully painful.
3 February 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As somebody to whom honesty is extremely important, I found the main part of this film incredibly uncomfortable to watch. But if anything it has given me pity for liars rather than contempt because, as this goes some way to illustrate, the disintegration of the soul is at stake.

As well as the morality and consequences of lying, it also questions how faithful we are to our principles in the face of stark reality.

On a lighter note, it's hardly worth posting as a goof, but why would anybody use a baby monitor when the baby is asleep in a tent just a few yards away? And there is no IMDb credit for Violet Long who portrays Xana - without whom there would be no story and little to feel good about!
