Patricia Clarkson makes the most interesting movies - I always like anything she's in.

I really liked this movie. I did not find it slow.
I loved the sensitivity. Well done.

Not a very engaging movie at all. Rather slow and cumbersome and you are not sure where it is going. Turned it off after 30 minutes.

I found this movie really boring. I watched it, or tried to watch it on Father's Day and kept falling asleep. It dragged throughout with too many scenes of her with her deceased husband. The acting wasn't good and I was glad when it was over. Had several good naps throughout the movie though

With its production subventioned by every government in eastern Canada, one might have expected a better outcome. The storyline itself is not bad, but whatever potential it had gets lost in this rendition, with all that running around in the woods. What a relief when Tim Roth shows up for his ten minutes: 'finally an actor' we want to shout! The ending, albeit highly predictable, will leave middle-aged female viewers with a stirring frisson of 'what might come next'. Nice scenery, anyway.

Trevor below is being generous with his 2 stars. This was bad, with a script which was likely written on a cocktail napkin. It had the details of an incomplete story. Ms..Clarkson spent the first 30 minutes cleaning a cabin, so you can actually start watching at 30 minutes into the movie and not miss anything. Did I mention how bad this was? I spent most of it watching on rapid play, the setting where people sound like chipmunks, but it went faster that way. Please draw your own conclusion what that indicates.

Like watching paint dry.

Take a pass on this dud.

Not much of a story. Patricia Clarkson is a great actress but the movie itself... well!

I thought this was an okay movie; a one time watch.
