We gave it a B-

Anthony LaPaglia lives deeply in the role of a grim, tired, adulterous police detective in this gnarled Australian import, one of those choking dissections of adult relationships in which every married anybody stumbles and trips while deceiving their somebody. It’s one of those only-in-the-theater coincidences that the detective’s wife — who suspects his infidelity — happens to be the patient of a psychotherapist whose disappearance is being investigated by said cop.
