Maria, a lonely 18-year-old high school student, opens up to her reflection because of the lack of support she has from family and her peers. She switches place with her supportive, but evil, twin that she discovers in the mirror's reflection, but the newfound freedom unleashes suppressed feelings.
When asked in an interview about filming the scene where India Eisley, playing his daughter, takes off all her clothes in front of him, Jason Isaacs said: "I liked playing scenes with India when she was (her character) Airam. Just because it's a father's worst nightmare that their daughter is suddenly aggressively sexual and confrontational. You're used to having a certain status and parental authority. It's shakey anyway in the real world, but in our grotesque movie world it's even shakier and I loved it because it was so unsettling." See more »

We've been there and done that but yet a surprisingly well done indie film.
I loved this movie! The motley crew of characters were beautifully portrayed by the cast. From jason Isaacs self indulgent, perfectionism - to Mira Sorvino's disturbing deep-seated sadness and her hunger for her husbands attention - to John C. MacDonald's portrayal of the school bully, who deep inside knows he could never get the attentions of the beautiful Maria. Yes, he was incredibly believable, they all were.
And lets not forget (how could we she was SO good,)India Eisley. She was exceptional to say the least and she's a new find for me. Needless to say, I want to see more of her. Her portrayal of the demure, disturbed, invisible school girl to her confident, angry alter-ego twin, was flawless. Her expressions alone were noteworthy. I think and hope we're going to see more of this young actress in the near future.
Was this a perfect movie, no. There are flaws and I think the ending needed a bit more attention but I was in for the long haul within the first 10 minutes and I'm glad I stayed the course because it delivered. IMO it's worth a watch and definitely worth your time.
