I love you.
Why do you think I'm doing this?
A smart, entertaining movie
This was a pleasant surprise. I really didn't know what to expect, but
I got was a very intelligent movie with more than enough twists and turns
keep things rather unpredictable. It took a little too long to get
everything set up properly, and it perhaps had one twist too many, but
overall, it was a great film with strong performances by Alessandro Nivola
and Reese Witherspoon. Definitely worth checking out.
