A very odd, quirky film. Manipulative. Disturbing. Revealing. And, darn funny, to boot!
It's the kind of movie for all kinds of reasons, hooks you. There you are watching, wondering, why in the heck am I sticking with this?
Ryan and Hutton - Great character studies! The robbers make you cringe. Happily ever after is deceiving.
Curious how much credit is due to the director rolling the camera with faith these actors will do their thing magnificently? Will the questions spoil the movie: Did the brilliant attorney wife set it all up? Was she out to win at all expense? Did she play fair? What length will people go to hold a marriage? Maybe, not the same as scripted, but the film begs introspection, what would you be wiling to do if faced with similar circumstances? What chance would there be for the husband's raw feelings to be revealed, had the drama not unfolded this way? Questions apply to the last scene. Four starts, becasue I watched it till the end.
Some reviewers believe this film is not worth the time of day. The last three minutes suggest otherwise. You decide.
