John Skillpa (Cillian Murphy) is a quiet bank clerk living in tiny Peacock, Nebraska, who lives his life in solitude. Then, in a moment, everything changes. A train caboose runs off its tracks and crashes into his backyard, destroying more than the weathered planks of his wood fence. When neighbors descend on the scene, they discover Skillpa's other personality, Emma, for the first time and mistakenly believe her to be his wife. This launches him into the glare of the spotlight and eventually shatters the delicate balance of his sanity.

  • 1 star "I will start off by saying my only real good comment. Cillian Murphy is a brilliant actor and is exceedingly talented. That in mind, I hated this movie. I found it so painfully boring. It did get better towards the end but I still just couldnt wait for it to be over. The story just didnt draw me in. I cant explain why exactly, but I was just overall disappointed with it all. Aside from Cillians brilliance, this movie was a waste of my time."
