Goofs

Late in the film, Bob Gault is told that his cell phone was located by GPS near the scene of the double murder that occurred early in the film. That requires a phone equipped with a GPS receiver, but the first GPS-equipped cell phone didn't reach the market until 1999, a few years after the film's era. Phones without GPS receivers may be located by tower triangulation. See more »

It's anything but an easy watch
1 December 2012 | by See all my reviews

The theme of the movie is very heavy. Mostly that theme is being handled in documentaries and not feature movies like this one here. And even if, it mostly handles it generally, as opposed to here, where you have the main focus on our main character. A sort of revelation and a great role to play, for an actress who's in quite a lot of movies recently (including Premium Rush and others).

Part drama, part thriller it obviously isn't aimed to be entertainment in a sense other movies are. But if you can handle the tough subject and if it's something you can watch, you will be rewarded with a really good movie, that is acted great throughout and has something to say (not only for itself, but in general).
