This really is a very worthwhile movie, good story line and quite believable.
I don't understand earlier comments about the budget for this film and how it was spent, I have seen some real shockers for the same budget (Last Passenger for one, now that was a painful movie to watch with not an original concept anywhere).
The characters are quickly developed and have reasonable depth.
The script was nicely put together and not over-done.
Dark and dreary was well portrayed as were the emotions of the situation.
I would recommend this movie, an interesting watch.
