Storyline

Evie takes a job as an agency carer and is quickly placed with a tetraplegic patient John. The burden of the job stirs up Evie's past and exhaustion sets in, it seems that the limits of caring are not always as clear as they should be. Forced to go above and beyond the call of duty, tormented by guilt and shame, Evie questions her own morals as past & present actions merge into the terrifying circumstances that unfold. It's only a matter of time before someone SNAPS! Written by Blacksmith Pictures

Not a dime a dozen
16 April 2017 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

So maybe the title of the movie has been used a lot. But what you are going to see in it, it's not something you've seen many times. Now you have to consider that the movie at hand has a really slow pace. It actually will unnerve a lot of people. But those who stay with it, will be rewarded. And it has great central performances.

Some may say and think that the ending deserves a better set up, but I do think it's a really good way to tell the story. It's also tough for the main actress who has is convincing in not her native tongue. And while you may be wondering about the male main character and his mood swings, I reckon it's not too far a stretch. If we put ourselves in his shoes ... But as already said, there is more to this, just wait and see
