It was never shown in the movie how Caroline got Rachel's body to the Kilmore farm. Caroline kept Rachel's body in her apartment for two days. She then wrapped Rachel's body in two rugs and took her, by taxi, to her father's Kilmore farm. Caroline told the taxi driver that she was moving a statue. She then buried Rachel's body in a shallow grave. See more »

Powerful movie with a long lasting impression
17 June 2011 | by danielle_galeSee all my reviews

This a powerful movie with a long lasting impression. I think Simone did a fantastic job with this story. She kept to the actual events of what happened to Rachel, her family, friends as well as Caroline without glorifying it, sugar coating it and hollywoodising it. It is real and it is raw. This is what happened and this is how the people involved experienced it. The acting is fantastic, the way the scenes flow and the cinematography is excellent. Along with the true story there are messages to take from it, one being involved and recognizing mental illness, as we know is a massive and growing problem in the community.
