When Sara Ballard (Amber Jaeger) becomes trapped inside her suburban home by the sudden onset of agoraphobia, her fear becomes a nightmare when her husband mysteriously disappears. With her sanity pushed to the breaking point, Sara s only hope lies with her estranged sister, and an enigmatic psychiatrist, Dr. Reznik (Andrew Qamar). But can they be trusted? Sara s journey through her darkest fears takes her from one unexpected revelation to another, and ultimately to a shocking conclusion beyond her imagination. From Director Greg Derochie (Visual Effects for Alice in Wonderland, Spider Man 1-3, Godzilla, I Am Legend) comes this psychological thriller where nothing is what it seems.

This is a good add to my movie collection.
I pride myself in being able to figure out the mystery, be it book or movie, long before the secret is unveiled.
I must humbly admit I only solved one small fraction of the puzzling mystery (which most veiwers will.)
I am blown away by proxy because Amber Jaeger (Sara)is just as blown away when she learns of her state. Therefore, my amazement is through her, or by proxy.
In my eyes, it demonstrates true creative writing when I haven't got a clue of a story's ending and am taken aback when I discover it. That is what SOLITARY pleasantly provided.
Just when I thought I had "solved" its seemingly random sequence of events, the story would throw a curve ball into the equation. And over and over again. And again.
Don't be fooled! It is not a frustrating story as true frustration goes nor does it lack in intrique despite its purposefully consistant bewilderment. No, on the contrary, the plot is riveting as is the superb performances.
I might mention: You won't want to pause for a bathroom break lest you interrupt the mental momentum even if for a second or two. (Besides, your mind won't "allow" it.)
SOLITARY is a relatively quiet movie which makes it so unsettling when any sound is intentionally produced. The director artistically captured the mood beautifully. For instance, the sporatic knocking on the front door as the persistant rumble echoes across the interior hardwood entryway. The unexpectant knock never grows old, remaining unforeseeable most every time.
This movie kept me on the edge of my seat-a tense one at that-and my mind constantly reeling without any let up. It was pleasantly exhausting.
I will not ruin this with a "spoiler alert." You shouldn't be robbed of the entire process that leads to a gratifying finish. But no matter how ingellient you are,I will bet money you will never, in a million years, figure it out to its fullest extant. That is the beauty of this film aside from the fact the plot is phenominal. (Suggestion: Pay attention to every sound, word, and action no matter how insigficant. It will serve as a convoluted puzzle in progress.)
I watched this movie late at night. If you're the sensitive type,as am I, be prepared for a sleepless night. My temporary insomnia wasn't helped with the knowledge that it was to be my birthday in a matter of days and my husband and I were going to celebrate in Northern CA. You will understand why.
Needless to say, I found Amber Jaeger's (Sara) endearing to say the least. You can't help but root for her, trusting only in her despite her evident unreliable (borderline bizzare) behavior and faulty memory. By design, the veiwer is left in the dark as much as Sara is. (She desperately wants answers,too!)
If I had to judge SOLITARY on a scale of one to ten (ten being the best) I would give it a twenty.
No, that wasn't a typo!
I am most appreciative,

I was pulled into the story right away. It was a suspenseful mystery, and kind of creepy.Read more
