    One of the many movies that was made in the 90s as a response or a slight rip off of Reservoir Dogs except this really works.

    Really enjoyed Joe Pantoliano’s performance and as a whole this was just a really well done film.

    Such great storytelling and wonderful performances by all. 

    Greta has all the goods! 

    Once you get used to the narrative the film flys by as you get lost in the characters and the dual plot lines. 

    Really liked the slight ambiguity about the ending. While the reality is most likely that Jo doesn’t end up married and that ending shot of them all at the house/school is only…
