During the first dining scene three out of four students hold their fork with their right hand. It is highly unlikable they would have not been taught that proper table manners demand you hold your fork with your left hand as it is done by the two adult teachers. See more »
Absolutely horrible! People do not waste your money! I was hoping for so much more, very disappointed. The only similarity to Misery is that it was miserable sitting through it. Characters were extremely weak with no substance. The performances were decent, but its hard to elaborate on such a bad film. Sophia hope you deliver on your next piece of work, this was atrocious.
