Great thriller

Started slow but builds into a suspenseful thriller with an Alfred Hitchcock twist.

Great acting and not a typical jilted lover story.

I almost didn't keep watching as it started slow but really glad I did because after the first scenes that set up the story it had my full attention. I didn't see the ending coming and I loved how it got you really thinking. Great date movie as it generated a lot of discussion. Really glad to find such a good movie on free streaming tubi. Better than a lot of the movies on not free Netflix. There were a few commercials but not bad and it being free made up for that.

Highly recommend this.

Sabina Geshem (Liana Liberato, Scream VI) is a dance teacher who once had her own dreams of dancing on Broadway. But that was before the injury and before she got serious with Ramsay Stranger (Jordan Rodrigues), whose business is struggling and who seems like absolutely the worst person for her to pin her hopes and dreams on. When she brings up that he opened another credit card in her name, just as she's paid off the last one, he makes it her fault.

He assures her that if he can just have a good meeting with Randall Abbott (Richard Kind, who seems like a big star for a Tubi original), all their problems will disappear.

No, that's exactly where they'll start.

Randall could care less about Ramsay's virus solution. Yet their meeting ends up introducing him to the businessman's daughter Alvy (Rumer Willis) and yes, Ramsay has a type: pale redheads. He starts spending time with his new love interest while continually demoralizing his old one.

There may be hope yet. An old dancing friend named Celine (Stef Dawson, Annie Cresta from The Hunger Games series) who is just getting past cancer learns that Eva Graf Schierling (Lara Wolf) is taking over as the director of dance and she's been asking where Sabina has been. The opportunity for her to become a dancer on the biggest stage there is still exists.

Ramsay responds to this by telling her that she keeps making the same mistakes, that she's setting herself up to be a failure and that he wants nothing to do with her any longer. He disappears from her life, which allows her to put her energy into dancing and finally concentrate on herself.

That is, until Celina takes her to a party and she runs into Ramsay, who easily gets her back for a night.

He laughs when she thinks they're getting back together and explains that he has a whole new life. She decides to see what that life is all about in upstate New York. It's gorgeous. The people are kind. And no one is kinder to her than Alvy, who is nothing like the thieving force of evil that she expected.

The real problem? Alvy is pregnant. And so is Sabina.

Directed by Todd Bogin, who wrote the screenplay with Omali Jeffers and Frederic J. A. Richter, I really appreciated that this movie strayed from the psycho ex-girlfriend formula to present an ending that is tragic and quite sad. The film looks great, thanks to cinematographer Barbie Leung, who finds great lighting, deep colors and intriguing angles that keep the otherwise seen it before story seeming fresh and vital.

Second Chances in Life

"Hidden Exposure" in a film about second chances in life, including how rare they occur and how we respond to them. Sabina Gesham's promising dance career appeared to be over after she tore her Achilles tendon and became involved in a committed relationship. But now, her second chance opportunity arrives with the offer to star in a major New York ballet production.

The man with whom Sabina is involved is named Ramsey Stranger. Ramsey is no stranger to trouble. After he blatantly lied to Sabina about his failed business dealings and ran up her credit card, he dumps her and begins a relationship with the Alvy, the daughter of a wealthy entrepreneur. And yet, he cravenly returns to Sabina long enough to impregnate her. Ramsey certainly made quick work of his second chance.

Clearly, Sabina's heart was not into seizing the moment to train for the role of a lifetime. Instead, she oddly decides to travel to upstate New York to confront Ramsey. While there, she bonds with Alvy, but chooses not to warn her about the fickle and abusive Ramsey.

The film was sad and even depressing in the missed opportunity of Sabina to follow her dream. And the fairy-tale allegory of the film never quite made sense. The filmmakers became overly "arty" in the ambiguous and unsatisfactory ending. The performances and photography were excellent. But a golden opportunity was missed to explore the special phenomenon of second chances in life. Rest in peace, Sabina Ramsey.
