Storyline

A late night call from Accident and Emergency shatters the lifelong friendship of neighbouring families, the Hartes and Golds. 17-year-old Emily Gold is dead from a gunshot wound to the head. All the evidence points to childhood sweetheart (and neighbour) Chris Hartes. The two families search for answers to the questions slowly destroying their lives. Once the murder trial begins, key evidence (Emily's diary) is withheld and as malice builds, the families grow further apart. Chris is the only one to know the truth, but can he bring himself to reveal the secret of the pact he had with Emily? Written by Anonymous

Great movie!
22 July 2007 | by azgirl188See all my reviews

I love this movie so much. Everything from the story line to the cast are wonderful and keep you hooked until the closing credits. Oh and I am a Megan Mullally fan and she did not disappoint me. I am used to seeing her in comedic roles but thought she made Melanie Gold (a challenging part in my eyes) lovable and real. I could relate to her and felt her loss. I wish she would star in more movies.

Also I really think this movie should have got more publicity... If you like movies like 'virgin suicides' then you'll love this! It's a movie you don't forget in a hurry and leaves you thinking. I hope you enjoy it as much as me :o)
