In Brooklyn, New York, Kyra (Michelle Pfeiffer) loses her job and struggles to survive on her ailing mother's income. As the weeks and months go on, her problems worsen. This leads her on a risky and enigmatic path that threatens her life.
A cynical college professor takes a keen interest in a talented young writing student. Despite good perfomances from both Stanley Tucci (Transformers: The Last Knight, Easy A) and Kyra Sedgwick (Born on the Fourth of July) never truly seems to reach the potentials that it has. The characters are interesting and the perfomances quite good and even charming but the storyline and the pacing? were truly lackluster to begin with and something that we have seen alot of times before of a professor being interested in a student of his (sexual and not) and this movie is no different and even tho the concept is very easy the film makes it like it's a freaking puzzle and Tucci deserved better. (3/10)
