Quotes

[first lines]
Nancy: It's like walking on fake ground upside down, choking.
Carol: Oh, is that what you think love feels like?
Nancy: No. Death is like sucking pure oxygen.
Carol: And life?
Nancy: It's like being trapped inside the wrong house looking for a way out.
Carol: Well, how do you know you'll be able to breathe once you die?
Nancy: Because I'll be outside my body. I'll be floating and free.
Carol: How do you know? How do you know it won't be worse?
Nancy: I know it will be better than this.

Powerful. Compelling. But hard to watch.
31 January 2008 | by j-m-arnoldSee all my reviews

I saw this movie at Sundance and thought it was one of the most powerful, compelling (and darkest) movies I have ever seen. It is the one movie I remember clearly from the festival; my memory of the others are fading.

I also found the story to be filled with suspense. Could what the clues are telling you about Nancy's plans possibly be true. Is she really planning what we think? Will she go through with it? Will her husband find her beforehand. Will her internet friend go through with it? The suspense builds to the end with some surprising twists.

Maria Bellow is extraordinary. I hope that the film gets distributed because she is deserving of at least an Oscar nomination for the part, if not the award.
