A must watch. Didn't see the ending coming at ALL.
29 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Saw this film at Cinequest 23 in San Jose. Didn't know what to expect going in to watch the film. I was engaged the whole film and all of the actors are incredibly talented.

It's one of those films you have to watch twice, and then you sit back the second time and it's fun to see the things you missed the first time that lead to how the film ends. As much as I'd love to say I saw it coming, the ending took me by surprise. Which is pretty amazing considering that the entire film I was wracking my brain trying to figure out what was going to happen, who was guilty, etc. The credits rolled and I just sat in total silence, in shock. Plenty to be said about the social commentary in the film. I left the theater thinking. That's important to me as an audience member.

Weeks later, and I'm still thinking about this film!
