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)

Excellent
30 September 2013 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this film. Excellent performances and an absorbing drama where the ending was not predictable.

In my opinion, it is of higher quality than many of the heavily promoted high budget Hollywood movies.

I read about it in a pharmacy journal, of all places, where the film was mentioned because the main character is a pharmacist. But I couldn't find a review for the movie in the New York Times, so probably it will end up being another small independent film that is good but few people will find out about. Also, it is not for sale on Amazon, not yet anyway.
