A Must See Thriller
30 July 2015 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

I saw this at the Palm Beach International Film Festival" and its one of the most intriguing, suspenseful psychological thrillers I have ever seen. Judd Hirsch is amazing and it's refreshing to see him back in a major role. The rest of the cast do a bang up job portraying a family that is holding on to their wits by a thread as of their own makes damning accusations against the father and turns the house upside down. At the end of the film you are sitting at the edge of your seat as the suspense and mystery steers the way. You think you have it figured out but you find out you are so wrong. The ending wraps up the film leaving you saying - Oh, I never thought of that. I can't recommend this enough
