Darwin (Cary Mark) and Christine (Marley Frank) fall in love at their first date, each drawn to the other's unconventiality (even if Darwin is working a desk job) and outlook at life. Also, they find many similarities in their biographies, down to sexual abuse in their childhood. It's not long before Christine moves in with Darwin, too. Thing is, Christine's far from the perfect woman (not that she ever claimed to be), and her alcoholism by the by causes tensions - up to the point where they have a massive row, and she runs away, carrying a steak knife just to make sure he doesn't follow. The next day, she's found dead, stabbed by that exact steak knife, and Darwin of course is the logical suspect and is soon apprehended, and with all the circumstantial evidence gathered against him, it's soon an open and shut case for the police. His lawyer (Steve McEvers) gets him out on bail though as Darwin wants to start his own investigations - thing is, the things he finds during his investigations don't necessarily correspond with his memories and shine a new light on the case - and a very unpleasant one for Darwin ...

 

Now here's a movie that's anything but predictable - literally everything that has been built up in the first half of the film is shattered in the second, but thanks to very clever storytelling it's shattered in such a way that it still makes perfect sense - just not the sense one expected it to. And a slick directorial effort that knows when to hold back and when to go for suspense and shock, and a couple of very relatable leads really make this into one strong thriller/psycho drama that's well worth a look - or even two to get all the little details.
