I am so glad that I found this movie! I agree with reviewer ejlabolton that this is an "unexpected treat".
I became a fan of Timothy Olyphant after watching Hit-man and Justified. So I started trying to watch all of his movies. This one is excellent.
I don't know why this is not more well known or more highly rated. The acting is good, the story is believable and the ending is perfect. I don't want to give away any of the plot so won't go into details, but the characters seem real and draw you in to their lives.
This film is a real gem and I hope more people can find it and enjoy it as much as I did.
