This story just happens to take place during the Christmas season ! !
25 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This story just happens to take place during the Christmas season ! ! It is not a Christmas story for family viewing during the holidays - and thank 'Gawd' for that. Forget the reviews that can't seem to grasp this important element of the plot.

This is a story that makes a wonderful statement about how Christmas is seen as all happiness and bright lights and celebration. Christmas is something we do - nobody lives the message. People still live their public and private life. People are seldom what they seem to be and that is the story of this film. It is all about Suzanne Barrington's journey in learning this lesson.

Suzanne is innocent. She thinks all is well with her marriage and her husband is the wonderful man he is when with her. After the "tragedy" Suzanne discovers all is not happiness and bright lights with her husband. And since she loved him she goes on a journey into his secret life to try to understand the man she was married to. How could he be all sweetness and surprises when with her yet at the same time have a stripper pole dancer drug user as his mistress. The only way Suzanne can gain insight into her husband's mind is to go live his secret life. This she cannot do because she is not him!

Suzanne also learns another truth about her sweet as sugar neighbors, and tries to fit in but she cannot! This story is all Suzanne's journey into trying to find her place in life after too many ugly truths fall upon her at a time of year when beauty and hope and false illusion surround all of us.

This is fine cinema and fine acting by all ! !
