    I give this film one star only because of the good acting. But the story I give negative 3 stars.

    This was a thought provoking film about mental illness and I was left with a sense of dread afterwards. The last 10 minutes made the film for me because I felt all along that something bad was going to happen by the time the film ended.

    I give it a two star rating for the acting only, which i thought was pretty good. i\'m not sure what this movie was supposed to do. i usually stick with a movie, even though i think it\'s boring until the end to see what happens. this is one of those i wish i\'d have turned off. i would not recommend this to anyone and personally don\'t understand why it has received high ratings.
