Atom Egoyan's quiet and tragic story is wonderfully and subtly acted, and chilling in a way that only the Canadian landscape can be.
I enjoyed the movie. Good actors, good direction. A lot of layered subtle character tension. It was slow, but I don't need shootings or car chases to be entertained. Nice watching this movie when it's 90 degrees outside. Sarah Polley did all the vocals for the songs: nice voice. Great movie with a 5 million dollar budget.
