Review: (#1) This design has a weak, unrealistic quality to it, which makes it difficult to love. There are some neat small elements to it, but not enough to be recommendable. (#2) This overly lit design looks modestly like the first design, but feels too sanitized to support the film’s premise. (#3) The suggestion of suicide by hanging, while relevant to the film, is in poor taste and the background is bland to boot.

Trailer Rating: B

Review: The trailer is clunky and doesn’t get quickly to the heart of the matter, but there’s a faint glimmer of intensity of narrative that might boost the film’s performance.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
