| Mysterious, malicious grifter makes a claim
An American thriller; There is an intriguing ambiguity to the stranger who rolls into Austin, Texas, claiming to be the daughter of a deceased country singer, who has seemingly inherited some of her father's talent. The pent-up anger, pain and defiance bubbles below the surface but never froths over into action, which is one of the film's strengths. The story creates empathy for the young woman as she tries to establish a connection to her new, foreign family. Refreshingly, the story avoids verbal conflict and manipulation and simplistic resolutions. However, the engrossing and edgy drama somehow fails to produce a vice like grip on the viewer by the end. Instead, we get graphic violence in place of motive. Still, it is a smart, tense movie with two good performances which make it work....just.
