i'm not use to writing reviews but hey, this is a really good watch, interesting movie, great cast, i loved it. @ least it's a story we can all relate to, i think Melanie Lynskey Killed it, best role i have ever seen her in. as the movie progress you get captured in the story telling and you can't just wait to see what happens in the next scene, not the kind of movie you'll fall asleep watching. very good acting, and don't expect to see some wild "sex scenes" when i read the plot initially my mind went straight to seeing Melanie Lynskey "wildin out" i know, i know .. but overall the movie is great, I loved it, go see it.
