Storyline

An impulsive sexual encounter from her past haunts Amy, an otherwise seemingly normal young woman with a bright future and nice-guy fiancé. But her fiancé has suggested that the couple be completely honest and tell each other everything! When Amy finally relents, encouraged to tell the truth by her coworker and mother (neither of whom really knows what she has to disclose), and reveals her secret, all hell breaks loose. Written by Geoffrey Gilmore, Sundance Film Festival Director

Loved it
26 April 2009 | by njenkinsonSee all my reviews

Bob Goldthwait? Interesting...

Once you get past the "disgusting thing", this movie makes you think about how honest we are with those we love. How much information is too much? Is withholding something the same as lying? Do we really need to share everything with someone in order to be close with them? Does someone need to know everything about you to truly love you?

I thought it was well written and acted. I don't recall seeing Melinda Page Hamilton before this, but I thought she was great. Her parents also did a good job with their roles.

I'd watch it again.
