The film was packed with such tension that I couldn't wait to see where it led -- but unfortunately it ended on a very even keel. With that said, I would still recommend this film, but highly suggest watching Nichols' much superior follow-up -- "Take Shelter". This film still receives a solid rating -- 7.5/10.

The plot revolves around 4 main characters and involves some rather shocking retaliations and plenty of suspense to keep you wondering and guessing. I was convinced from the great acting that their love was real and what was going on throughout the movie was all something realistic that could actually happen. Right up to the end it had me on the edge of my seat and after seeing this, I want more romantic films that have suspense and mystery in full effect.
