    What starts out as an ordinary looking drama, slowly develops into an awesome thriller, that simply doesn`t let go.
    Red headed Moore gives a great performance in portraying a woman trying to come to terms with her son`s death.
    The video transfer is very good. The colors are beautifully saturated and no compression signs can be spotted at all.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is very good, too. The surrounds are widely used throughout the movie and provide a very nice sound envelope.
    The menus are animated with sound.
    The extras include two behind the scenes featurettes and three deleted scenes (including an alternate ending).
    Bottom line - a great thriller with some fine acting. Recommended.
