I was delighted by this sweaty, psychological thriller. Way in the backwood swamps of Virginia, a desperate housewife has hopes for love by a rich dweeb in the nearby city. She wants liberation from an abusive, stupid criminal and so comes up with a scheme. Add to the mix an even worse idiot - a lustful sidekick primitive even dumber and more dangerous than her husband - and you have all the elements of an excellent film noir. You can also answer the questions, "what happened to that adorable kid in ET?" and "what about that latest Lolita?"

The acting in this is excellent, the girl just the right mix of sexiness and sleaze, and the action as believable as the characters. Warmly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars A white trash love story., 3 July 2010

This is one of those films which is quite hard to review as it's a strange mix of character based drama, thriller and romance all mixed up with a Shakespearian tale of double crossing and deceit. The direction is well paced and the gripping story cleverly twists and turns carrying you along for the entire 97 minutes. The acting was especially good with Dominique Swain and Henry Thomas proving they should have far higher profiles than they currently have. Overall, this is an excellent little film which is quite hard to pigeon-hole into a genre, but if you enjoyed Craig Brewer's 'Black Snake Moan' and 'Billy Bob Thornton's 'Sling Blade' then this is well worth a look.
