Storyline

2AM, closing time: A cocky bar manager with a shady past and a young handsome bartender discover a beautiful woman bloodied and unconscious in the bathroom of a late night lounge.

As we begin to piece together the elaborate puzzle, nothing is what it seems. However, one thing is for certain: this Rose is full of thorns. Written by Anonymous

Loved it!
5 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

Dose of Reality offers something that is rare these days in cinema, originality.

The plot and development thereof is completely void of the typical formulaic approaches that exist in most movies in this "thriller" genre.

From the opening scene, till the end I had no idea what twists and turns would happen at the next moment.

Dose of Reality does not rely on flashy cgi, camera movements... to suck you in, but rather very well developed characters and unique plot line.

I highly recommend Dose of Reality to anyone who loves a true thriller.
