Walking around London leading up to the funeral was a sombre affair. So many questions posed on the news and yet the end result was still the same — a young woman had died in a tragic car accident. After that, the film descends on a slippery slope. It was like the makers had the first draft and some higher authority basically went: A script that feels butchered and redacted.
So already my mind at this point after it does a decent job of building up Diana Naomi Watts as a characteris already questioning the facts and what is exaggerated for movie purposes.

My soul is from elsewhere, I'm sure of that, and I intend to end up there. What is the soul? I cannot stop asking. If I could taste one sip of an answer, I could break out of this prison for drunks.
