Sleeping Dogs Lie (2006) - Details
AKA : Sleeping Dogs
AKA : Stay
Amy is a seemingly normal young girl, adored by her parents and golden-boy fiancé. Her future looks bright until her fiancé suggests they tell each other their darkest secrets things they have never told anyone. When Amy finally relents and reveals her secret, everything falls apart. Bobcat Goldthwait has written and directed a story that adeptly explores honesty, family, forgiveness, and courage. By frankly probing our relationships and idealization of the absolute virtues of honesty, SLEEPING DOGS is a funny and perceptive dark comedy. Sure to be one of the most talked about films of 2007, this is independent filmmaking at its best: raw, original, and edifying. Fueled by a standout lead performance by Melinda Page Hamilton, well-drawn characters and Goldthwaits very special sensibilities.
