SUSPENSEFUL DRAMA WITH ONE VERY TENDER SCENE

June 2, 2022
I HAVE BEEN A FAN OF ANTHONY HOPKINS EVER SINCE SEEING HIM PLAY PIERRE IN THE 1973 MASTERPIECE THEATRE PRODUCTION OF "WAR AND PEACE" AND THE ABC MINISERIES "QB VII.", AND HE CAN USUALLY BE RELIED ON TO GIVE REALLY GOOD PERFORMANCES. (THE ONE EXCEPTIONN WAS HIS SCENERY CHEWING PERFORMANCE IN "SILENCE OF THE LAMBS." HIS PERFORMANCE IN THAT WAS PROBABLY THE WORST PERFORMANCE TO WIN AN OSCAR, AND "SILENCE" WAS DEFINITELY THE WORST MOVIE TO WIN BEST PICTURE). THE HIGHLIGHT OF THIS FILM FOR ME WAS WHEN HIS CHARACTER TOLD HIS SON , "DON'T DO TO YOUR SON WHAT I DID TO YOU." THE REGRETFUL TONE IN HOPKINS' VOICE MADE THAT SCENE EVEN MORE POIGNANT. DIRECTOR RICK DUGDALE IS VERY GOOD AT CREATING TENSION- ESPECIALLY WHEN THE MURDERER INVADES VERONICA'S HOUSE AND WE SEE VERONICA AND HER DAUGHTER CLINGING TO EACH OTHER OUT OF FEAR. THE SCRIPT BY CAM CANNON CERTAINLY CONTAINS SOME VERY INTRIGUING PLOT TWISTS, AND CHRIS BROCHU AS THE SON OF HOPKINS' CHARACTER MAINTAINED A HIGH LEVEL OF INTENSITY THROUGHOUT THE FILM. I'D LIKE TO SEE THEM ALL WORK TOGETHER AGAIN- ESPECIALLY IN A FILM WHICH FOCUSES MORE ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE CHARACTERS RATHER THAN JUST THE PLOT TWISTS.
