Honestly, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this flick but since Naomi Watts was involved, I thought I should give it a try. Indeed, I watched this movie above all because of Naomi Watts but she actually had only a small part in it. Apparently, she made this movie a few years before she reached fame with 'Mulholland Dr.'.
