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)

Not what you may be expecting
3 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

This was an excellent movie for a low-budget Canadian flick. I really think a different title and description would get it more exposure. It was not at all what I had expected based on the title and description, so the same is likely true for you.

The movie gave me a lot of food for thought. Unfortunately without giving spoilers, I can't elaborate. It is a bit dark - so take that as a warning.

The lead actress was awesome. She was entirely credible in the role. I understand she was 'accidentally' cast and the choice of putting her in this role was a solid call.

It's a shame that movies like this get buried while Hollywood trash does 100+ million at box office.
