Trivia

Lynne Stopkewich said that Gary, as written on paper, was more one-dimensional, but Callum Keith Rennie was determined to make him more real, so he added genuine feelings of confusion/remorse to Gary's apology. See more »

Disturbing, dark, overbearing.
4 November 2000 | by See all my reviews

A deeply disturbing film, with some coarsely difficult scenes to view. Dark from the outset, with nary a glimmer of hope evident in its passing, this film is wanting to capture much more than it does. Overt symbolism weakens the plot, and were it not for Molly Parker and Callum Keith Rennie's stunning performances, this film would be seriously damaged. A difficult film to recommend.
