Review by Kandy McKinney (posted on 9-Jun-2011)

This is not a feelgood movie. What I find so interesting is that the premise is about a bureaucratic screw up at a tax office in the city of San Francisco. Things go quickly downhill from there. It's a great movie and the characters are very well developed. If I say anymore about this movie I will give it away. Suffice it to say, it shows how one little mistake can bring down an entire house of cards.
