Storyline

Locked doors, and the monster inside us. In L.A., tightly-wound Julian Wright is separated. He meets Michael, she's seductive and uninhibited; by chance, a few days later they connect. The PR firm where he's creative director is competing to be bought by a household name (think Proctor & Gamble); winning will bring money, status, and a big ad budget. His firm's win depends on both his ideas and his maintaining traditional values; so, he puts his divorce on hold. His family adds problems: childhood memories and his sister's abusive husband threaten his balance. His fuse is short. Will self control hold obsession and fury in check, or is Michael the spark that will start a conflagration? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Where did this movie come from
19 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

I was really shocked by how much I loved this movie. I am a new fan of Jason Clarke so I'm watching all his films and this movie came out of nowhere. Jason Clarke is just delicious in this movie, he's an amazingly talented actor and hits all the emotional highs and lows. Plays the part of corporate big shot just as perfectly as the broken son. Paz Vega is the definition of a Bombshell in every sense. Stunning doesn't do her justice and if the movie couldn't be anymore well casted, Idris Elba....BOOM. With all that good there has to be something bad, Jada Pinkett-Smith. Stay behind the camera where you belong. She wrote an amazing movie, casted it to the max and ruined it by being in the movie with a useless storyline. But anyways, I really liked it and recommend it to anyone for a good dark drama. I had no idea how it was going to play out, could have run the mill like the rest but it went in a different refreshing direction.
