Good Movie
28 January 2012 | by Mayorbob-278-770302See all my reviews

I just finished watching it on the Netflix stream. I wasn't really expecting much but what caught my attention was Diane Venora in the cast. She's been a favorite of mine for a long, long time as she's an actress who inhabits, rather than plays, a role. She didn't disappoint in this movie. But she wasn't the best thing in the movie. The male lead, Robert Chimento, was extremely effective as an Army veteran mourning the loss of his daughter who only enlisted in the Army to follow in her father's footsteps. But the true revelation was Annie Burgstede, who played a 15 year old forced to become the unwilling bride of a Warren Jeffs-like head of a fundamentalist offshoot of the Mormon Church. He was played with uber-sleaziness by Tom Noonan. The movie billed itself as "the dark underbelly of Big Love" and it wasn't hyperbolizing in the least. Strongly recommend this for everyone who thinks those Mormon offshoots are just a bunch of harmless, loving religious types.
