Trivia

The entire film was shot in 17 days. Which is a very tight schedule. Actually, the original schedule was 14 days but the train that was booked had doors that wouldn't open at a certain point so an extra half-day was given. See more »

Strange Thriller that is also a delve into obsession.
24 February 2017 | by Tom DooleySee all my reviews

Henry Ian Cusick plays Danny who is an Englishman making documentaries in the US. One day he sees a girl on a train who has been crying. He is strangely drawn to her and decides to act on his impulses. She is enigmatic and mysterious and he finds himself wanting to see her again.

Then they do meet and she uses her feminine ways to get him to act out of character and take him down a path that once he has set foot on it, there is no turning back.

Now this is a well written, filmed and acted film. There is a lot of clever observations on life and some real chemistry between the main players. The film works by using flash backs to flesh out what has already transpired and it is done rather well. The problem is that it is all a bit too contrived and unbelievable and the dénouement is just a bit too much to be taken seriously so it loses marks big time.
