Storyline

In Toronto, Nicole is feeling depressed with her pharmacist job with an overbearing boss and her family life is a mess. In that gloom, Nicole starts receiving letters from a secret admirer bearing sympathy, gifts and instructions if she still wants the correspondence. Intrigued, she follows the directions and they invigorate her even as the letters become more bizarre. Eventually, Nicole figures out her admirer's identity and things take a disturbing turn with a difficult plea. Now, Nicole must decide how willing is she to fulfill it and whether there is more to this situation than it appears. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

I think this will fill up a rainy afternoon if you have one open
17 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

This was a bizarre movie that took some interesting twists and turns. It left me numb at the end, not sure how I should feel about it. I guess that is why I wrote this right after the end of the movie. This is the type of movie that you need to mentally chew on for a while to grasp the scope, motivations and reactions of the characters. This could even be good for a second viewing which I rarely do. This would help you see the movie from the other side of the mysteriousness This is quite an interesting premise. It goes to places you don't expect it to go and where you end up is probably not where you expect to end up.

I think for an interesting project, they should give the script to five or six different directors and then take them to a certain point in the movie. Then, just step back and let them take it from there. This is the type of movie that would turn into five or six equally satisfying yet different movies if that idea was followed. That is the type of movie this is.

I gave it 7 stars for the creativity and thoughtfulness of the premise. It was enough to look past the acting. I'm not saying the acting was bad, it was actually quite good in places, but I have never been a judge of acting. The movie stimulates your curiosity enough that you can look past the performances. Someone else will need to comment on that.

I will say that I wouldn't mind seeing the leading lady more. She is pleasant to look at and believable. Even as I write this it is growing on me, but I'm quite easily entertained :)
