A tense road movie with a twist on conventional getaway thrillers, Frances O'Connor and Matt Day play an amoral couple of petty thieves who are on the chase with a videotape which implicates a famous footballer in child pornography.
Frances O'Connor's brilliant performance paved the way for a brief foray into Hollywood movies (Steven Spielberg cast her in A.I.: Artificial Intelligence on the strength of her performance in this).
As good as it is, it's not quite as memorable as other films with similar themes (Badlands, The Getaway, etc), but is most certainly worth a watch
6/10
