Storyline

Richard Hunter, a promising young lawyer at a prestigious firm, has the perfect future mapped out. However, a costly mistake with a powerful client has put it all at risk. In a desperate attempt to save his job, Richard and his wife Tara spend the weekend at the cottage of senior partner Preston Westwood. The young couple is quickly seduced by their charismatic hosts' lavish lifestyle but it is clear that something ominous lies just below the surface. After a devastating act of violence reveals that they have become pawns in a blood feud between the Westwoods and a local family, Richard and Tara must decide what they are willing to sacrifice for success...their morals, their marriage, or their lives.

A Good but not Great movie
27 January 2015 | by Squiresdan2002See all my reviews

I humbly disagree with "We Make Good Beer". Although this is not a classic movie it is a good movie and much better than some of the drivel that comes out of Hollywood etc. The story got me as the mess the young couple got into gradually got progressively worse. The ending is not your typical "all is well" ending and that alone stands it apart from most movies.

The movie filmed in Sudbury has four main characters who interact revealing personality weaknesses in definitely three of the four and the fourth finally is caught in the web of self-destruction.

Canada has great acting talent, obviously glorious locations to film at, great actors and great production companies.
