Great acting - TERRIBLE DIRECTING
2 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

I mourn the movie this could have been in the hands of someone who knew what they were doing. This is below Lifetime-Movie-of-the-week levels of skill. Film-school style camera tracking. Terrible screen wipes. It's too distracting to make this enjoyable. Shame since the actors are usual great.
