The perpetrator had a compelling reason for the crime and a logical reason for not admitting it.
We liked this film so much that we watched it again when it was shown a second time on television. We liked it because the perpetrator was truly a victim and our sympathies stayed with her throughout the grueling investigation. The actress (Arquette) was believable, necessary for our sympathy and understanding. The dialogue was "right on." It made sense, but was also well written. The camera views and angles were something we appreciated, as in most good films. Like a Greek drama, we knew who committed the crime right at the start but it is the unraveling, the whys, that make it so riveting. We wish there were more films like this - gripping yet understandable.
