UTTER RUBBISH...I cant imagine how this came to be made....and with a great cast...must have been paid a heap of money....dont bother
Very creepy in a Hitchcock sort of way. Well filmed - tense character interaction with very mature acting by the two lead boys.
So-so. I think quasi religeous might have done their dash.
A slow-paced psycholofical study of troubled teens in a hideous boarding school. The acting is excellent and the plot is nicely unpredictable although a bit too full of conspiracy theories for me. It felt a lot longer than the 1hr 45mins.
The story line may be a little wacky around the edges but it's worth watching for the great performance from Toni Collette.
Fair to middling. Good cast let down by a pretty ordinary script and somewhat banal dialogue. I'm usually fairly slow to work out a mystery, but it was obvious who the baddy was after the first fifteen minutes.
Creepy, disturbing and boring. I'm surprised I got to the end of it.
Interesting, slightly offbeat pyschological drama. Two very intelligent but troubled teens are brought together in the stuffy halls of an expensive private school. Like minds or not, it seems that neither is happy about it. Told in a flashback style as Toni collette, playing a forensic psychologist tries to get to the bottom of an apparently open and shut murder case by interviewing the teen suspect. Tense, surprising, dark and disturbed. Excellent viewing which might require some explaining at the end- my teenage son usually brings me up to speed with movies like this.
I am still trying to come to grips with the plot. I do not have a like mind
I found this movie very boring and only watched about the first hour
Very queer, but well worth watching just to say you've seen it.
Well this started out with some promise but was let down by its convoluted storyline. Pretty well all the characters were unlikeable so ultimately you didn't care about the fate of any of them. Strange looking young lead actor with most of the scenes set in a sort of "demented" Hogwarts school evironment.
A young private school boy has just been picked up by the police for the murder of another school boy. A forensic phycologist is called in to determine the events and extract a confession at the same time. While the story has many merits in its fascinating storyline the screenplay is often loose and the connection between the characters is hard to follow.
Fairly disappointing film. Although I enjoyed the scenery and Gigglewick School, the film went nowhere for me. Richard Roxburgh who I rate highly, had a very ordinary part in this film and the storyline failed to keep my attention.
