  • The real trouble is at its core, with an over-the-top performance from Sedgwick that borders on Baby Jane campiness. show more

  • Good performances and a keen eye for period detail can't disguise the fact that not much is happening here story-wise. show more

  • First-time director Kevin Bacon (Mr. Sedgwick) cleverly maintains a balance of discomfiting and familiar by jumping nimbly around Emily's life. show more
