formulaic, but sound
15 July 2014 | by JamieWJacksonSee all my reviews

This is a pretty good TV movie. I could understand someone rating it highly. I can't think of anything really lacking in it, but somehow it didn't draw me in all that much.

All the performances are good, the production values are solid, so I guess it's the story that left me wanting a little bit more.

Hmmmm.

As I'm thinking about why I didn't like it more than I did, maybe it's because I'm a man. Most of the men in this movie were scumbags, and the women were the protagonists. I think that may have made me vaguely uncomfortable. Perhaps that was part of the point? Give male viewers a sense of general dread, similar (perhaps) to how it feels to get caught into the kind of lifestyle and reputation that Cayley did? Just speculation. If so, I guess maybe I should rate it higher, since it succeeded!

Anyway, it's far from being a bad film. Pretty good, actually. I think I would have preferred a slightly more gender-balanced allocation of good/bad roles, but maybe that's just me. So, 6/10 for me, but if you don't share my discomfort (or approve of it), you may well rate it higher.
