Emma describes her relationship with Daniel as "complicated". On the series Castle (2009), the adjective is how Kate Beckett, also played by Stana Katic, describes the romantic relationship that develops between her and Richard Castle, the show's lead character. See more »

Emma: Well, then maybe it's time you weren't. That's what we've both been waiting for the past eight months, isn't it? One of us to end it.
Daniel: Oh, this relationship ended the moment Kerry died, and you know it.
Emma: You selfish asshole!
Daniel: God damn it, Emma! She's dead! Can't you accept that?

Truth About Kerry - a great little movie!
10 March 2012 | by jkonlineniteSee all my reviews

I love independent films, and I loved Stana Katic in "Quantum of Solace", so I was really excited to see "Truth About Kerry." Stana's portrayal of Emma, the best friend of the title character, Kerry, is wonderful. This film was shot earlier in her career, but it's not hard to see why the producers hired her. She's beautiful and likable on screen, and the role of Emma gives her an opportunity to demonstrate her range as an actress.

Additionally, Darren Keefe has a bright future ahead of him as an Irish leading man. His brooding and intense presence on screen is at once disarming and unsettling. He brings an authenticity to the role of Patrick, the troubled photographer with a salacious past.

The cinematography is quite beautiful, showing off Waterville, Ireland to the uninitiated. The footage of the Irish countryside is so lush and magical, I wouldn't be surprised if "Truth About Kerry" was used by Ireland's Chamber of Commerce to entice tourists and visitors to come and see the locations where the movie was shot.

Incidentally, this film won a Best Screenplay award for writer/director Katie Torpey at the LA Femme Film Festival.

Well-paced with a steady build toward the denouement, "Truth About Kerry" is edited together in an engaging 84 minute story. And there's a shocker at the end that I never saw coming, making the film even more intriguing.

It's worth watching twice!
