Julia Banks (Rosario Dawson) is starting out on a new life. Just escaping from an abusive marriage, she met David Connover (Geoff Stults) and moved to San Francisco to start a new life. But the mother of his child, Tessa Connover (Katherine Heigl), is not ready to let go of her ex-husband, and uses daughter Lily (Isabella Kai Rice) to worm her way back into the family with disastrous results.

I enjoyed this film, but I must admit that it was by default as there wasn’t anything else really appealing this week. There is a lot of criticism by people who watch a lot of movies, that this film is very derivative of many other movies. This is true, but there are some updates to this story that make it different. First of all, it’s up to date with today’s technology, and a couple twists and turns. On the other hand, it is very similar to lots of other films. But the acting was good. Katherine Heigl was quite interesting as the bad guy, and Rosario Dawson was really good as usual. She did some really well done fight scenes that were top notch. Cheryl Ladd, one of the great actresses from the 70’s and 80’s has a small, but important role as Tessa’s mother, and adds a tremendous boost to the storyline. It was really suspenseful, and the technical side of the film from the soundtrack to the photography were really well done. So be aware, that this movie will be really easy to figure out, and it is highly predictable, and the story is similar to many other attempts at the same story, but if you’re so inclined, it is a very well done psychological thriller, this one has it. So choose wisely.
