Trivia

The subway station in the movie is an abandoned station at Bay Street on the Toronto subway. At one time it was used when trains switched from the Bloor-Danforth line to the Yonge line. When that was discontinued because of switching problems, the station was abandoned. The Toronto Transit Commission rents it out for movie shoots such as this. At one point it had been made to look like a New York subway station and the TTC wished to keep it that way. However the fire department vetoed that because the material used in the "disguise" presented a fire hazard. See more »

Goofs

In the report the possessive pronoun "its" is spelled like the contraction "it's". See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Jeff Novak: [entering interrogation room] Hi Emily. Didn't need to be like this, did it?
Jeff Novak: "Emily Gray. First class artist, high school. Graduated Vancouver." Everything seems to have gone along swimmingly until 1995. Then, 1996 comes along, and wow. You tried to drown a little boy in a lake, out of the blue. You served 5 years on that, you're out for only one, and then this mess. You want to tell me what's going on? I mean you do right? I mean that's why you confessed. I'm all ears, Emily? If ...

An Intellectual movie worth the time
15 October 2005 | by a_birtchSee all my reviews

It could be easy to complain about the quality of this movie (you don't have to throw cartloads of money at a movie to make it good, nor will it guarantee that it is worth watching) but I think that is totally missing the point. If your expecting fast cars, T&A or a movie that will spell itself out for you then don't watch this, you'll be disappointed and dumbfounded.

This movie was thoroughly enjoyable, kept us on the edge of our seats and made us really think. The writer obviously put a lot of thought and research behind this movie and it shows through the end, just remember to keep an open mind.

Note: the school scenes were all filmed at McMaster University and most of the rest was done in Toronto.
