    ★★★½ Watched 27 May, 2014

And 3 of them are only in for like 10 minutes, the movie basically rests on the shoulders of Patrick Wilson and Ellen Page, and boy, can these two act! Especially Ellen Page, I mean, she was 18 (looking like 14) when the movie was made and she's simply incredible in it.…
