Storyline

Livid over her husband's affair, Rose drives from Virginia to Delaware to confront (if not kill) the woman who dallied with her man. While unable to immediately confront the woman, Rose finds a British lad who's somewhat stranded after coming to America, having pursued a pretty girl he once met but finding her now with another. Both emotionally adrift, Rose and the boy end up with each other for company at her parent's beach home, even roll-playing while Rose awaits the chance to confront her elusive romantic rival.

a smooth pebble if not a gem.
21 July 2012 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this movie, as it does not feel constructed in the way most movies are. It makes you feel the way you would feel if you were in Rose's shoes, overwhelmed by emotions and with no idea what you are going to do next. Enslaved by pain and bored by the lulls in between when she does not know what to do and acts without thinking. For me this movie feels totally realistic and true. Of course some scenes make no logical sense, but we are all a bit illogical especially when hurting. Still they are interesting to watch as other lives not our own seem more interesting sometimes. There are moments of profound truth and emotional release that are very impressively acted and filmed and make the movie totally worth watching. Don't expect a masterpiece, a precious gem, but a nice round pebble smoothed by the sea.
