It's always fun to go into a film without any expectations and come out feeling that one has run into an an unexpected gem. Maybe you rented/bought the film just because it was available. Maybe you like Melissa Leo (or any of the other actors) and decided to give it a try just because she was in it. Runaways is a moody, compelling film. You assume you know where the film is going, and admire its subtlety and restraint, although you begin to question some of the choices the main character has made and wonder if this is an underlying weakness in the writing. Then, as the film draws to its conclusion, you realize that all may not be what it seems, and by the end of the film you realize that the writer knew exactly what he was doing. The questions left at the end of the film, its very ambiguity, are what makes this film so absorbing. The relatively short running time (abut 80 minutes) also is a big plus; if the film had been much longer it probably would have upset the delicate balance it had sustained.

The ending did not make sense, and I can't say anything more without ruining it for someone else. I enjoyed the film and thought the way it just hinted at the abuse rather than show it in graphic detail very well done--lots of great things about this film, and it kept me interested, kept me hooked. But the ending left me guessing--made very little sense to me at all.

I won't spoil it for everyone else, but the ending was definitely not what I expected. I give an extra star for that. Robin Tunney is my favorite actor, so I need to give three stars for that reason!!

What a great story. I don't want to say too much and ruin the movie for anywone so I will do a longer review in a couple of weeks. If you haven't seen this movie, be the first or somebody else will ruin it for you. This is going to be one of those talked about movies at the watercooler and I've already started telling friends to check it out.
