The beginning of this movie can be a little hard to follow the first 10-15 minutes because of the flashbacks.  Once it gets going it is a lot easier to know what is going on once you get to know the characters.  This movie has wonderful imagery.  I feel it was filmed very well.  I have this listed as horror and some places classify it as a horror but I see it more of a realistic drama.

It is about a woman who was sent to prison for kidnapping and murdering a 5 year old boy.  It tells why she did it and what she did to get her daughter back and get revenge on the person who sent her to prison.  The story is pretty good and it kept my attention but was a little long.  This movie does deal with the death of children which could be too much for some viewers but it was not done in a hokey Hollywood fashion.  It was a good movie to watch once and I would recommend others watching it but I would not plan on watching it again anytime soon.
