The Life Before Her Eyes Gets a See+

And...The Sherlock Holmes Movie Viewer Sleuth Award goes to you — IF — you figure out what this edge-of-your-seat flick is all about.
The Movie Slut was baffled. The Movie Slut was riveted.
In the aftermath of a Columbine-like disaster, we meet a weird Uma Thurman. Is she suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome? Survivor guilt? Bored housewife psychosis? Or some icky condition you wouldn't guess in a gazillion years unless you read the book by Laura Kasischke.
Evan Rachel Wood is captivating as Uma, the younger.
As the movie zigzags from past to present, The Movie Slut was ever more confused and fascinated. It's your turn, now. Seeing is believing?
