Goofs

When Arthur comes home to find Joan asleep on the sofa, the tea kettle starts to whistle. He comments that she could have burned down the house but this is in error as 1) she had only fallen asleep in the time between turning the fire on under the kettle and 2) she awoke to the kettle's whistle.

A Good Movie
29 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

I think the movie is underrated. I know it is not one of the best movies that anyone should watch,but it is not that awful. A great crew in this movie. The script is not that good.The movie will really touches u.The drama was good. A good experience for anyone. there is no doubt that Matthew did a great job at this movie, but he should take care of his coming movies. I compare between his role in this movie and mud. I think the difference can not be noticed. The same of his voice at both movies. overall the whole cast and the movie is very good for me. I recommend the lovers of drama to watch this movie especially the psycho movie lovers. do not be so harsh on Matthew. Each actor need a variety.It is a good one
