    Started so clichéd but picked up towards the latter part. I can't say there's exceptional acting, but it's a good story. Sadly it lacked some character build ups and direction. Even for a one-hour and forty-five-minute film, it still needed more time. Things just didn't pan out so well. Great effort though by Christina Ricci.. and for what it's worth, a cool soundtrack.
