Director: Scott McGehee, David Siegel
Cast: Tilda Swinton, Goran Visnjic, Jonathan Tucker, Josh Lucas, Peter Donat

Mother discovers the body of her teenage son’s gay lover, speculates what has happened and decides to cover it up. This captivating thriller doesn’t turn into a cat and mouse game between her and the police but into something more original and interesting, although it somehow keeps the viewer at arm’s length through the events. Tilda Swinton is very convincing in the lead.
