Review

A snowy, rural Michigan is the backdrop for this cunning little crime film about two psychologically unstable siblings (Eric Bana and Olivia Wilde) on the run after a casino heist gone wrong. They split up in the woods in order to be harder to track, and end up with completely contrasting realizations about their lives after stumbling across various individuals along their track. Except for the decisive love story, which seems to catch the two actors and/or the director somewhat out of their depths, the many charater relations are constantly interesting and sometimes even downright stirring. Eric Bana revels in his newfound bad-boy-image, and it's great to have Sissy Spacek and Kris Kristofferson onboard when you need solid character performances with limited screen-time and context.
