A hot altercation followed by a gallant rescue gets a lonely screenwriter a front-row seat to a tense backwoods drama when he decides to take in an ex-con drifter. Now, he is bent on making his host a better man. Will this nightmare end?
Outside a mountain town grappling with a series of abductions and murders, Paul (Antonio Banderas), a reclusive writer, struggles to start what he hopes will be a career-saving screenplay. After a tense encounter at a diner with a drifter named Jack (Jonathan Rhys Meyers), Paul offers Jack a place to stay-and soon the edgy, demanding Jack muscles his way into Paul's work and the two men begin a jagged game of one-upmanship that will bring at least one tale to an end.
Really enjoyable story. I had my own theory on what the ending was going to be, I wasn't too far off it. If you want to watch a movie that does not involve thinking, then move on, however if you would like to watch a movie which involves thought process and keeps you guessing to the end, then this one is for you. An ending that will surprise, and is very cleverly thought-out. It does drag out a little in parts, but nothing too bad. Acting is good, storyline is believable. No plot holes.
