Rather stilted and uninvolving, but entertaining enough
on 21 June 2009
I found this rather a strange film, because although it has a rather pedestrian plot, a mix of "Fatal Attraction" "What Lies Beneath," and "The Hand that Rocks the Cradle," the cast and acting are stellar. Susan Sarandon is one of my favourite actresses and Emily Blunt is convincingly menacing. Susan Sarandon and Sam Neill are a couple whose marriage is under strain. When Emily Blunt appears as Sam's employee, from then on there are strange happenings and it's pretty creepy. I guessed one of the twists, but beware, there is another, final one. A perfectly adequate film but not really outstanding or different.
