Amanda Wyss has been one of those interesting character actors who's been working forever and, yet, she's rarely been given the chance to really show what she's made of. The Id finally gives her the chance to step up to the plate and she hits it out of the park as Meredith - a lonely, put upon woman who still lives with her her abusive father and has absolutely no life of her own. When a former flame walks into her life, she tries to get her life back together, but it's no use. She's doomed from the start.
The Id isn't a very hard film to predict where it's going and there's not a mood of enough gloom and doom to make us feel like we're watching high tragedy. The script is fairly pedestrian without many surprises, but it's a testament to Wyss that it still stays quite watchable to the end. I can only imagine what she'd be able to pull off with a better written role.
