So when I saw this film advertised, I thought it looked like quite an interesting psychological thriller. After watching the first few scenes, though, I felt that the preview could have played this off as a romance, which would have made this have even more twists in it.
I liked the character of Claire. I do think that Jennifer Lopez is a good actress, but I felt that the script worked. I could empathise with what Claire was going through during the film.
Noah was quite a creepy character, even from the start, though I think that was as much because of what the trailer gave away as anything else. There did seem to be some attempt to make him a bit more well-rounded, but again, because of what the trailer had given away…
The idea of being stalked is a really scary one and I felt this film portrayed that really well. It did start off as innocent and quickly became more twisted and creepy. Doubly so considering Claire was a teacher.
I also liked Claire’s relationship with her son, but not so much with her husband. There were times I felt she gave him a bigger priority than their son.
The atmosphere of this film was particularly dark, but I was drawn into it really easily. There were other actors I recognised, too, and I felt they all played off each other really well. Again, this isn’t a film I’d watch again… but it was intriguing enough to watch through the first time.
