review by
Mike Haberfelner

After he has served a three year sentence for battery, Connor (Ray Nicholson) can consider himself lucky to have the boring life he's leading, which mostly consists of working as a librarian and doing a lot of running in his spare time, with his regular meet-ups with his somewhat abusive probabion officer (Hank Azaria) being the highlights of his routine already. And then, one day when he runs past a fairly secluded beach area, he happens upon Marilyn (Diane Kruger), and the two hit it off pretty much right away, so much so that she eventually starts to visit him in the library every now and again. Before long the two become lovers, but there's a problem, Marilyn's married, and her husband Richard (Victor Slezak) is very much on the abusive to violent side of things - but since he's filthy rich, he can get away with it. Marilyn would have long left him, if it wasn't for her stepdaughter Astrid (Chase Sui Wonders), for whose safety she fears should she not be there to protect her. So eventually, Connor and Marilyn come up with a plan to kill her husband, Connor would break into Richard's house while she and Astrid are on a shopping trip and bash the man's head in. Thing is, while Connor has no problems to break into the house that night, Richard isn't home - to only return to catch Connor red-handed. Somehow Richard makes it to his gun he keeps under the pillow before Connor can overcome him, and as he's about to shoot Connor - when the story takes a very unexpected turn, and even if Connor's life is saved, it might not be a turn for the better ...


Now I have to admit, this movie takes a bit to kick into gear, and it makes a few too many references to The Postman Always Rings Twice - James M. Cain's source novel much more so than any of its adaptations - and similar books and movies, and is really kept alive by solid perfomances from the entire ensemble more than its storytelling, but once the story reaches boiling point it leaves little to be desired and finds new twists in what seems to be an age-old story, managing to surprise us until the very end. Not a perfect movie maybe, but the third act certainly makes up for any earlier shortcomings.
