Yesterday's secrets breed today's nightmares in this dark drama concerning three strangers who will kill to protect what is rightfully theirs. Jean (Penelope Wilton) is a professional house sitter on the eve of retirement. Before Jean stops taking jobs, however, she has agreed to watch over the palatial Walden Manor while the owners are away. Later, as Jean settles in for an uneventful weekend in the sprawling country estate, her peace and quiet is suddenly shattered by a desperate knock on the door. On the other side, a pregnant girl named Steph (Sinead Matthews) on the run from her abusive boyfriend. Accompanied by kindly stranger Michael (Daniel Mays), Steph is seeking to find a safe place to give birth. But Steph has left a trail of blood that leads directly to Walden Manor, and in her effort to find happiness by escaping her violent past she will soon discover that the present can be just as unforgiving. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
This was a good wierd movie. Yes it starts slow, and is actually slow throughout the movie, but I think that was the way it was suppose to be. Leave it to the English to make psychos so sophisticated. If one sits down and watch it all the way through like I did, they will enjoy it.
In the beginning this movie had my attention and I was interested. As the movie progressed it took on a very poor quality. I think the whole concept was difficult to enjoy. People using people and making it right in their world was offensive. Not a good choice for me. I did watch the entire movie.~~G
