A dark comedy about an eclectic group of strangers invited to a downtown bar by a mutual ex-lover, Nikki Franklyn, a maddeningly sexy, unpredictable and possibly insane young woman who's recently gotten out of prison for murdering her last ex-boyfriend. The party really gets started when Nikki herself arrives, hauling her latest lover and fiancee, the morally challenged lawyer who'd been handling her case. She's mysterious about her intentions and her current and former lovers soon realize they are all caught in one of her brilliant, mischievous mind-games with possible deadly consequences. By the night's end, revenge will be had, new romance will bloom, and Nikki will have delivered on her reputation as the sexy evil genius. Written by
Everyone in this film does a credible job and the story line works for me too. Katee Sackoff is a seriously under rated actress and she totally had me going in this film. I loved her in B.G., I love her in Longmire and am looking forward to her role in the new Riddick film. Trachtenberg never looked hotter and acquitted herself well in her role. Baldwin knocked it out of the park.
The pacing of the film could have used a bit of work. There were some times in the middle where I just wished they would get on with it but other than that, I was pretty darn satisfied with this film and am glad I watched it. This film is about dialog ala My Dinner With Andre or The Man From Earth. If you need action to enjoy a film, look elsewhere.
