Technology brings us closer. Or perhaps it brings strangers, a little too close. But how much can you really trust someone? With a new ride share service, you never know who you'll be getting in a car with. Or if you'll ever get out.

The use of The Humming chorus from Madame Butterfly by Giacomo Puccini is a reference to Jennifer 8 that utilized the same track. The 90s Bruce Robinson thriller is a favorite of co-writers Nick Remy Matthews and Craig Behenna. See more »

I have to agree with one of the other reviewers that there isn't much, if anything, to recommend this by-the-books cult drama.
We have a chemically-dependent, terminally depressed young shrink (played convincingly enough by Mark Leonard Winter) whose young patient's suicide drives him over the edge, leading him into a cult-like EST-ish back-to-nature group led by Father Jay (Steve le Marquand).
Father Jay's group is all about getting "clear" (sound familiar?) and uses various punishing physical and mental techniques to supposedly "heal the soul".
So... is there anything you've heard so far that leads you to believe this is unlike any other cult you've heard about before?
Nope, didn't think so. And there isn't. I guess this might be shocking material for those who've never heard of brainwashing or even Charlie Manson, but it's snooze-inducing for those of us who have.
It's a pity because this isn't a poorly made film. The acting is decent. It just revolves around a non-story that's ordinary and non-compelling, to be kind. It's only 103 minutes, but it feels like a century. What a complete waste of everyone's time, including ours.
