This is a good story with a few surprises, not the typical twist, but genuine realistic moments that bring this script to a different kind of conclusion, making this film memorable. The villain, Jake, is hugely unstable and Cami falls quickly for him, even after he reveals that he's an ex-con. Yet, she's not just a lovesick fool, she's smart and intolerant of things that start to emerge in Jake's life. This, and the way that Jake ends up, is what makes this film stand apart from the usual suspenseful dramas.

Character Development/Writing Quality: Constant inner turmoil within the villain, Jake tightens each uncertain moment. When will he blow? He's edgy and easily angered, not unlike my ex-boyfriend--eerie.

Values: The mom/daughter relationship is treasured, though terribly broken when daughter Cami falls for the bad boy.

Content (sex, language & violence): Sex is not shown, only a couple in bed under blankets after the act. Mild language once or twice. Violence is infrequent, but somewhat intense when it occurs.

Scare Factor/Suspense: Not much of a scary movie but rather a tension-filled plot where Jake's instability intensifies erratically.
