QUICK TAKE:
Supernatural Thriller: A family man discovers that the house he lives in now was the scene of a triple murder five years earlier…and he might have been the murderer.
PLOT:
Soon after Will and Libby Atenton (DANIEL CRAIG and RACHEL WEISZ) move from New York City to suburban Connecticut with their two daughters, Trish and Dee Dee (TAYLOR and CLAIRE GEARE), they discover that their seemingly idyllic home was the site of a triple murder five years earlier. It seems a father snapped in that house and shot his wife and two young daughters.

Their neighbor, Ann (NAOMI WATTS), appears to know more about the killings than she leads on. But she is dealing with Jack (MARTON CSOKAS), an angry ex-husband who thinks she cheated on him when they were married. They share custody of a teenage daughter, Chloe (RACHEL G. FOX), who also seems to know more about the murders that happened on their street years earlier.

Will starts to doubt his sanity when certain clues point to him as the deranged father. He goes to track down the killer, who was placed under psychiatric care, and is shocked to discover that it really was him. He also learns that he was recently discharged from the mental facility because there was never any hard evidence that he committed the murders. Did he commit the murders and his mind can't accept it? Did Libby kill the girls and then turn the gun on herself? Or, was it Boyce (ELIAS KOTEAS), the shadowy man who Will catches lurking near his old house from time to time?

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Older teens may have some interest.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
