I have never seen a performance by Elizabeth Olsen before this, assuming she was about as "good" as her sisters, meaning not good. But she gave a really great performance. And to stand on her own next to Jessica Lang, that is high props. She is extremely beautiful and really is something to watch in the future.
Other than the distraction of a few Harry Potter Alums I was really taken with this movie, it was a very well written storyline and I didn't see the end coming. The actors were well casted and all carried their own. Having put this movie on the back burner for so long i'm really glad I watched it now. Wish I had watched it sooner. A real sleeper surprise.
