Storyline

A working woman recovering from an abusive relationship and its self-destructive repercussions meets a seemingly charming, friendly bank teller, whom she marries. Almost as soon as the marriage begins, she begins losing things and events begin occurring that she cannot remember, which all seem to be the fault of her husband. Whether she is actually insane from going off her medication or if her husband is inexplicably toying with her remains to be seen. Written by jackie norgle

predictable, but still well done and suspenseful
15 April 2010 | by fallen_angel_256See all my reviews

A woman, who was in an abusive relationship that had broken her mentally and took her 4 years to get back on her feet after her breakdown, finally managed to get her life back on track. she meets a man who seems comfortable with her situation (she's still on meds), they fall in love, get married... BUT things start to happen, as our heroine misplaces her keys, her phone, the shirt she bought in the color green is suddenly red, and everybody thinks she's becoming crazy again, even her husband. But, as always, there's more than meets the eye... or is it?!

A psychological thriller that uses plot-lines that we all have seen before, and you can guess from the get-go what's going to happen. but still, this movie is very well done. the story has a good pace that doesn't let up, some logical twists, great writing and directing, and some fine acting from all actors involved.

But, all the credit goes to Shiri Appleby. I was waiting for her to do a role like that, something complicated, and she managed to do it perfectly. And, if you have seen her in other projects, then you know that she can really act. she was amazing here, playing a heroine who is somewhat crazy, paranoid but still knows how to survive and protect herself and keeping herself from breaking-down again.

All in all, a great movie, something you can watch on a Sunday afternoon or on a rainy evening, and you would not be disappointed. Sure, not the greatest film ever, but it's suspenseful, well acted and directed, and entertaining, and the major plus- Shiri Appleby.

final score: 9 out of 10.
