A stew of a movie
16 September 2012 | by gggnarlySee all my reviews

What a great who done it, keeps you guessing until the very end, Reminds me of how Nick Charles orchestrated his investigations in the Thin man movies, just bumped up a few decades. Colorful, believable characters, with quirks and drama that reel you in when you meet them, making you care for each one for different reasons, showing you how complex each person is, and how those complexities inter relate with the people around them; like a Minestrone, or Wedding soup and how the ingredients combined blend and enhance the flavors of each ingredient to bring a flavor pitch, like an orchestra coming into tune blowing the audience away!
