A movie with really good acting but just never really settled into something I could get involved in.
31 January 2017 | by See all my reviews

"I just want to help you." Mary Portman (Watts) is a child psychologist that has lost her husband and is taking care of her invalid son. She does her best to counsel other children while her life is crumbling down. She becomes concerned with one child in particular and now she has to decide to do what is best for the child. What she wants, or what others think. This is a movie that is worth watching because of Naomi Watts. She does everything she can to hold this movie together but it still just doesn't work. The movie starts off OK, but by the end it was hard to tell what was actually happening and what was real and what wasn't. I do like movies you have to think about, but this one just didn't make sense and you are left thinking about what is happening, then something else strange happens and you are trying to figure out how it fits and then something else happens and you just give up. That is not a good thing to happen in a movie. Overall, a movie with really good acting but just never really settled into something I could get involved in. I give this a C-.
