A Good Solid Well Made Film
18 October 2017 | by tdwillis-26273See all my reviews

This film has top notch acting and the story pulls you in immediately. The plot has a brisk pace and its easy to love/hate/sympathize with the characters.

The camera work and direction does an excellent and strait forward job of presenting a married couple stranded in winter making unwise and selfish choices.

This movie is pretty predictable and strait forward but I still enjoyed it and was interested to see how it would turn out.

It was a good solid film across the board.
