This would be five stars off the charts awesome if all it was about was Tilda Swinton's acting, but it's not. There's a story which starts off pretty well and sets the agenda for making you accept that things won't always make sense or go according to plan but by the second half the film, as much as the story, just unravels to the point that it's hard to stay on board. The film could have been edited by a third to make a tight thriller but we'd miss much of Swinton's great performance. I loved every minute of her but the plot comes up short and the ending fails miserably.
Julia is an alcoholic on the constant decline. She spends the nights partying, usually not knowing where she is, when she wakes up. Because of that, she loses her job. Her only friend, Mitch, a recovering alcoholic himself, makes her go to an AA meeting, where she meets her neighbour, Elena.
