I had no idea what to expect from this movie but since it was recommended by one of my favorite listal members, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, to be honest, even if it turned out to be a decent watch, I'm afraid it didn't really work for me. I mean, the beginning was pretty good and I really liked the main character thanks to a solid performance by Melanie Lynskey. Concerning Elijah Wood, he was also pretty good, even if his character was slightly too quirky for my taste. Eventually, the main issue I had was that, even though the state of mind of the main character was interesting and relatable, I just didn't care much about her quest. Seriously, what did she expect to achieve? I mean, she was lucky enough to find back her most valuable stolen goods so what was the point of tracking down the guys responsible for the burglary? Of course, you can blame the police force for their negligence but the guy had a point when he said that she would get in trouble if she would further go down this road. Anyway, to conclude, even if I didn't really care much for the damned thing, I have to admit that it is still worth a look, especially if you like the genre.
