It feels like the movie was incomplete. The performances were great but the movie lacked substance.

Richard Gere gives a good performance but I find the story has many turns that doesn't quite get there. Just OK movie wise!

Richard Gere is fantastic and this movie is well done. This and his role in Time out of Mind have given me a new admiration for his acting style and his role choices. Dakota Fanning has a very small role in this and I would have liked to see more of her. Theo James is quite charming and talented as well.

I gave up after almost an hour in. Not recommended.

This film is a mess. I watched it because I usually like Dakota Fanning and Theo James is good eye candy. Fanning looks depressed throughout, and she seems detached and distant. Theo James looks pretty, but that's not enough to make the film worth watching. Richard Gere's character rocks back and forth between annoying and desperate, except when he's both. I wish I had those 92 minutes back...
