A road nowhere
26 December 2018 | by iain1918See all my reviews

I kept going back to see if there would be a break in this blight of a thriller/drama. The plot is messy and generic, not to mention the fact that there are almost zero costume changes over what must be a matter of days. That's a huge clue that the production values are constrained by budget concerns and a condensed shooting schedule - or that the whole show has ambitions it was never going to deliver. The lead actor annoys. She feigns exasperation and indignation to such a high level that it makes the rest of her interactions with the cast grating at best. Oh - next time you include some Canadian context maybe you can throw in a Mountie and a beaver, such was the hacked out representation of the Montreal connection. This is tepid stuff. Don't bother unless you are snowed in or lost in Borneo with nothing else to watch.
