Great movie although it didn't go where I thought it was heading - There may not have been a better actor for this role than Cillian Murphy - As usual Ellen Page is an endorsement for any film & this indie role suits her to a tee - The rest of the cast is notable - The film contains stunning photography (not of majestic mountains) and images that appeared perfectly constructed for a very visual movie - Well crafted script with many scenes where a single word delivers the next chapter of the storyline - Highly recommended for the moviegoer who likes to be emotionally drained as well as entertained - Almost from the start, this is an edgy film where it feels like something is just about to happen and there is little expectation of that something becoming anyone's successful pursuit of happiness.
