Review by Abbas Ali Massah (posted on 18-May-2005)

One of the best from Hollywood and the best of obviously Angelina Jolie. She has never acted better to date.. other than in the Bone Collector .. though here she is fabulous. Its a sad story of one lady who could have had the world but was destined to die alone and having lost all that she had and could have much much more. Though could have been better but well made and shot. TRULY A MUST FOR LOVERS OF CINEMA.
