When you think Jennifer Lopez, you think cheesy rom-com films such as 'The Wedding Planner' and 'Maid in Manhattan'. Suprisingly enough this film is not only fantastic but it very inspirational!
The film follows Slim (j.lo) a waitress, who serves a man trying to bed her for a bet and ends up marrying the man who interfers and tells her about the bet. Everything is picture perfect - she get married, has a kid and live in a huge house.
But the fantasy starts to go wrong....
She discovers that Mitch (her husband)is cheating on her, you all think 'why the hell would you stay with him?'
however when she confronts him about it he is physically violent with her and beats her up, threatening her if she leaves him or tries to take his daughter away.
Juilette lewis co-stars as slim's friend who, one night, helps her to escape
Slim lives her life on the run with a false identity, trying to keep her and her daughter safe, however no restraining orders will stop her violent husband, and with a friend in the police he tracks her down. Again on the run she realises that you can run but you can't hide and no restraining orders will stop her violent husband, therefore she must fightback....
This film is very inspirational with a strong message;
"you have a divine animal right to protect the lives of yourself and your offspring"
If you like thrillers or films with a really good plot this is the film for you but also...
!!!!! IF YOU ARE A WOMAN - WATCH THIS FILM !!!!!!!
It empowers women, and shows women fighting back against rat-bag men, it inspires women to stand up for themselves and what to do when we come across (which we all will once in our lives) either a cheater or a violent man.
Over all a very powerful film with a great story, J.lo is perfect for the lead and it will grab your emotions to the highs and the lows!!!!
