| Superb acting and twists and turns a plenty
Just when you think you know where this story is heading, it takes some twists and turns that will leave you reeling. The acting and direction is superb, especially the lead role played by Pablo Schreiber who is dealing with dark secrets that don't become fully apparent until near the close of the film. All the actors give great performances aided by a superb script. The music and cinematography are equally compelling. On one level, this story is about abuse, but it also is about people making unwarranted assumptions without possession of the full facts. Nothing in this film is quite what it seems to be. Its conclusion is stunning and cautionary. Well done.
