A wealthy art collector’s (Betsy Randle) obsession with a young painter (Eric Laden) develops into a psychosexual relationship fueled by jealousy and delusion.
Writer/director Cory Wexler Grant employs a slow burn approach that proves effective as the dysfunctional relationship between the two principals develops slowly and never seems forced or contrived. In the end, the film proves to be surprisingly effective, as not only is it a convincing thriller but also a pointed examination of the sacrifices we make in order to succeed and the justifications we employ so that we might live with them. Good performances from Randle and Laden help the movie over its rough patches, helping this become a sleeper worth seeking out. 3 Stars.
