Very well crafted and unique film with a poor title
Despite what the previous reviewer said this is a very good film. The excellent globally known actors ( Sarandon and Neill ) portray their characters with subtle, very believable nuance and the virtual newcomer Emily Blunt plays off them like a seasoned vet. With great actors in place all you need is a good story to flesh out and this one hits the mark. Is Sarandon paranoid or is something or someone really unraveling her life, marriage and sense of what's real ? The trip to what happens is worth every second on screen and the ending not only has a twist but a second subtle and more mysterious twist right at the end that turns your first conclusions upside down. This film is well set up for a sequel (which I doubt will happen due to its release straight to video in the U.S>) but also stands very well on its own. Emily Blunt is a new actress with great talent and will surely become a big name once her work gets more exposure. The movie is well worth seeing if for nothing else than its very unique unresolved double twist ending.
