When Mari Gilbert's daughter disappears, police inaction drives her own investigation into the gated Long Island community where Shannan was last seen. Her search brings attention to over a dozen murdered sex workers.
Consummate con man Roy Courtnay has set his sights on his latest mark: the recently widowed Betty McLeish, worth millions. But this time, what should have been a simple swindle escalates into a cat-and-mouse game with the ultimate stakes.
Matt and Kate buy an isolated house. While moving, they discover a strange room that grants them an unlimited number of material wishes. But, since Kate has had two miscarriages, what they miss the most is a child.
What a fantastic movie. You know the synopsis by now and you have heard complaints of slow paced first half. Ignore that because the pay off is worth it. I am not going to give you a clue just trust me. The one point I will make is that in the wrong hands and with the wrong cast this could have backfired but this is in perfect tune with incredible performances by all. I mean stunning, award winning level. Not just Noomi Rapace but Yvonne Strahovski too. I suspect they helped each other tremendously because their interactions are so believable to watch. If you are deciding to watch it just do it, it is a little gem.
