| Good movie, slightly underrated
I have never read the novel, nor heard of the movie. After reading some of the reviews here, I decided to give it a shot. And I have to say, I do not regret it.

This is a very dark movie with disturbed main characters, greatly acted by Robert Considine and Julia Stiles. This isn't your typical fast-paced Hollywood thriller. I consider this movie to be "different", the plot develops slowly and is very unpredictable, which makes it in my opinion very enjoyable.

I totally recommend this movie to anyone, who likes dramas / thrillers with a dark touch, and enjoys great acting.

I give it a 7 out of 10.
