Let me start by saying that I dislike Owen Wilson and seeing that he is the lead in this film I was not at all hopeful. But from the moment this film began, I was drawn in and have to say that the critics got it wrong.

This film delivers.

It is by no means an Oscar winner but it had me feeling suffocated and on the edge of my seat for its entire running time.

Fantastic score, heart-wrenching performances by Lake Bell, Pierce Brosnan, the two young girls, and yes even Owen Wilson.

It had some very dark and hopeless moments that kept us, the audience, praying for a light at the end of the tunnel.
