Not recommended. I've seen better.
15 March 2006 | by KAnnD86See all my reviews

The main plot of this movie, from what I could gather, was about a famous photographer, Jo Ellen Hathaway, who has been being stalked for quite some time. She returns to the island she grew up on in an effort to get away from the stalker and get some well-needed relaxation time. On the island, she meets up with old friends and boyfriends and works on relationships with her family. However, she can't shake the feeling that she's still being watched.

Overall, this movie wasn't very good. I had a hard time following what was going during much of the film. I wasn't clear who the characters were in relation to one another or what made them do the things they did. Most of the characters were very 1-dimensional. The main character, Jo Ellen, made some irrational decisions I don't understand. The dialogue wasn't believable, but it wasn't as bad as some TV movies I've seen. I'm not sure what I expected from this movie. I was disappointed though. Not recommended.
