intriguing concept but flawed execution
1 June 2020 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Paul Preedy (Daniel Baldwin) loses his son Clifford in a pool drowning. One year later, he has separated from his wife (Mimi Kuzyk) and lives in the empty office space of his bankrupted company. While he and his son Tom have a session with therapist Dr. Winston, they encounter the intriguing Arabella Bauer (Leslie Hope). Paul is invited to a mysterious school reunion. Sandy Adams and David King allude to a reason in the past but Paul insists on not remembering or understanding. When Sandy is killed, police Det. Frank Skoufaris (Dean Stockwell) investigates. Paul tracks down his old headmaster Jock Beale (John Neville) who tells him about a scandalous incident in the school infirmary with the three boys and another boy named Victor Dempsey. Paul struggles to remember.

This movie starts like a sad family drama with the child drowning. It really should start with the four boys in the inciting incident. This movie is trying to be a noirish murder mystery with a femme fatale. Some of it is there but it struggles to be any good. There is a big twist at the hour mark. Baldwin needs to show the shock of the reveal but he doesn't. I wonder whether it's his acting or the directions he's given. The overall concept has some intriguing potential but the execution is lackluster and flawed.
