ESP’s film critic Gavin Miller settles on the sofa for another small screen movie review…

When Abby (The Imitation Game’s Tuppence Middleton) returns to her hometown of Niagara Falls after her mother dies, she becomes obsessed with a fragmented memory of her childhood – a kidnapping of a one-eyed boy that she witnessed while on a family fishing trip.

She is reunited with her estranged sister Laure (Joker’s Hannah Gross) in an attempt to settle her mother’s estate involving the sale of the dilapidated family motel – which Laure wants to sell to local businessman Charlie Lake (Fifty Shades’ Eric Johnson) who has effectively owned the town for three generations – but her compulsive desire to reconcile her past starts to grow out of control when she investigates the disappearance.

But with a legendary history of telling lies to see her through life, will anyone believe her?

One thing’s for sure, with some nice twists and turns director Albert Shin has eked out a taut psychological thriller that comes highly recommended, headlined by a solid lead performance from rising star Tuppence Middleton – who gives a lot more than her two pennies worth.

ESP Rating: 4/5
