A Predictable Suspense with a Too-Old Susan
6 July 2006 | by lasasalaSee all my reviews

Emily Blunt makes a good showing this predictable suspense made out of Australia. Susan Sarandon plays a 40-something wife of an architect and mother of 2 small children.

Plagued by artist's block, obsessed with owls and haunted by missing toys, dresses and photos, this scatter-brained artist is convinced that her husband's co-worker has the make on him. Or does he?

Two hours later, you'll know the truth. My suggestion? Fast-forward to midway. You'll figure it out.

Soundtrack is annoying. The beginning sounds like there is moaning through out the house; and it's not the scary kind of moaning. The cinematography was good; direction good; production good; acting good; Susan's casting was just wrong. And screenplay was weak.
