Less than the sum of its parts
5 August 2018 | by smatysiaSee all my reviews

This film turned out to be less than the sum of its parts. Bonnie Bedelia was lovely, and acted her part well. I was unfamiliar with the rest of the cast. A few of the actors resembled one another, so it wasn't always easy to keep them straight. Nobody acted poorly. (I thought one actor was bad at first, but later I could see that this was the way the part was written.) The plot held together fairly well, and I didn't see the big reveal coming. But overall, it bored me for the first 2/3 of the film. I suppose it doesn't matter, as I see that no one has commented on it for over a decade.
