But wait there's more

  • Katherine Monk, Vancouver Sun (paid).
    Jennifer Ehle as Betsy is also intriguing, but in an entirely different way. Part of her charisma has to do with her uncanny resemblance to Meryl Streep (though she is no relation, and actually happens to be the daughter of RADA-trained Rosemary Harris). The rest has to do with her vacant, euphoric stare into infinity.

    It's like watching a kitten in a post-catnip trance: You're never quite sure what she's going to do next.

  • Chris Knight, National Post (not online).
    He also finds time to fall for Ehle's character, who breathily says things like, "No ... we mustn't ... do this ... it's wrong ... we can't," accompanied by heavy petting

  • Susan Walker, Toronto Star (free registration).
    The overnight romance that develops between Betsy and Abel is another complication. Like the evergreen trees in the foreground that look as if they just arrived from the nursery, the vaseline-lensed sex act they perform immediately after Abel opens his door is best categorized as movie apparatus.

  • Lee Ann Gillan, Halifax Daily News (free).
    Jennifer Ehle (Pride and Prejudice), usually so bright and lively in her work, is wasted here in a mousy, pointless role as a teacher who falls for Abel.

  • Lucas De Stefano Meira Henriques, Topo (audience review).
    Bom suspense! um policial com tom sobrenatural... merece ser visto! principalmente pela persença de Ed Burns.
