Not a bad film for an ex- singer turned actor. In fact Nick Jonas who played the lead, did a decent-enough job. This Drama/Thriller released in 2015 written by Chris Frisina and directed by Elizabeth Allen Rosenbaum had all the makings of a teenage boy’s fantasy. Besides the sexual content, nudity and language, the uneasiness was intense as the audience witnessed the slow torture of our marshmallow-hearted main character.
With an estimated budget of $8 million USD this film had the makings of a blockbuster but sadly in my opinion some of the acting came across galactic and laughable. Aesthetically pleasing to the eye; with beautiful shots and the prototypical blonde to match the perfect-summer for teenage-boys-back-drop . However, viewers quickly realized how to calculate and link the suspicious deaths.
It wasn’t believable that the husband played by Dermot Mulroney appeared to be only in his 40’s. I think his character was much too young to play the part and find it incomprehensible that he could succumb so weakly when he played a bully.
