Rewind The Past Cannot Be Erased

Karen (Amy Huberman), a recovering addict, has forged a new life for herself in a rural town with her husband Brendan (Owen McDonnell) and young daughter. Karl (Allen Leech), an old boyfriend, arrives in town out of the blue, bringing with him memories of Karen’s shady past, invading and shattering her new idyllic present. Fearful that Karl will jeopardize her family by revealing details about her past, Karen reluctantly agrees to take a trip with Karl to meet another old acquaintance who Karl claims has evidence that could compromise them both. Ghosts must be laid to rest and horrors acknowledged, before the perfect surface of Karen’s life can be restored. Nothing is as it seems, but the past will be buried one way or

The 411 by Maria: Karen's has a nice little new life in a small town with her husband and her daughter. She attends her AA meetings and is trying to forget the life she had before. Unfortunately for Karen she learns that your past cannot be simply locked away in a closet. Sometimes it comes back to haunt you in the form of Karl an old boyfriend with a less than sinister agenda than to get Karen to help him with a scam situation they were both involved in years before. The movie is very dark and I don't mean "scary and deep" I mean I found it hard to see what was going on at times. It was an OK premise and the actors do a good job with a mediocre movie plot. Karen's husbad was my favorite character and I found myself wondering if the movie was coming full circle in a way. Umm..things to ponder. Disclaimer: I received a complimentary screener copy.

    This sounds like it might be an interesting movie to watch. The only issue would be the dark movie background. The darkness of the film might be a problem for me visually as I've had cataract surgery. Thanks for the honest review.
