In the winter of her senior year, Maya talks to Jared at a frat party, accepts his invitation to dinner at a nice restaurant, then goes to his apartment, just to talk. He assaults her. Her personality changes, she's withdrawn; she graduates and takes a job at a clothing store, staying apart from co-workers. At night, she's someone else: a beauty at the club scene, dancing, seductive, sniffing cocaine, becoming the friend of a heavy hitter. She thinks about her racial identity. That fall, she's a grad student, and Jared is in an exam she proctors. She invites him to her apartment; he's certain she's stuck on him.Written by
From word go the movies frustrating attempt at enigma drove me to almost turn it off. It was somewhat curious to begin with but with its depth constantly shaded until the explosive last moments it wasn't something to be watched with others. Although the character performances were intriguing i thought they were restricted somewhat and should have been a little more in your face. Don't get me wrong, i love plot hooks but this one had just a little too many and lacked a lot of explanation. Its one of those movies you want to see the end of, but you want it sooner rather than later. Powerful ending, I wouldn't recommend this film though IF you still insist on watching it then do watch it through till the end. Just Don't watch it with dad :)
