Not Sure About This One
21 May 2019 | by foutainoflifeSee all my reviews

I've never read the book so my opinions are based solely on the film. This was a bit of an odd movie for me. I kinda thought it might be a "Flowers In The Attic" type of film but it wasn't that at all. This is a slow paced film that has very little to offer in thrills or suspense. It does make you stop at times and ask "WTF?" as situations would present themselves and the characters would not express normal reactions. That caused everything to have a surreal feeling. That would have been ok had things been explained more and given the viewer a much more clear understanding as to why they were acting in such an odd manner. I know what happened between the sisters but I never got a good sense as to the why's. The best part of the film is that it is really well acted.

My takeaway is simply that this is a toss up film. I didn't hate it but I didn't love it. It's one to take a chance on.
