As Nancy put it, "BRAVO!" (Claps his hands)
4 April 2003 | by Tenchi64589See all my reviews

This movie did have it's low points (Like in the beginning with the whole snake thing), but it is well worth watching.

It's a real intense piece of work, all four actresses did an excellent job.

Everything really came together, especially the near - end scene where Nancy and Sarah face off.

If you can, watch this movie... you'll really enjoy it.
