Glenn Close is wonderful in this film...

...and the accolades she's received are well-deserved. It's a quieter film but packed with tension and emotion. Was pleasantly surprised - I often dose off watching less than inspiring movies at home (hey, what can I say...lol!) but this film held my interest throughout.
