Editorial Reviews

A young American woman (Stana Katic, TV's Castle) travels to a remote village in Ireland to investigate the mysterious circumstances surrounding her best friend Kerry's death. She realizes that the village may be hiding more secrets than she thought, and it isn't long before she develops an obsessive belief that her friend's death may have been no accident. A stunning, suspense film with a shocking conclusion!

Finished watching "Truth about Kerry" not long ago (DVD has arrived earlier today) and let me tell you, this movie is a MUST SEE :) For every STANATIC and not only, just for everybody who loves good movies. This movie has it all - great story, wonderful acting from everybody, but especially from Stana Katic, totally shocking ending which leaves you with your jaw on the floor. Great writing and directing, wonderful cinematography and wonderful cast. Independent movie at it's best :) Personally I think that if this movie had been released at least 4 - 5 years earlier, Stana would have been in completely different place with her film career. Every film director must see it and get Stana for the main parts in their movies. She's THAT GOOD :)

Also the music in the movie is beautiful, great job by Ciaran Hope, he deserves some awards for his score.

I know for sure that I'm going to re-watch this little gem MULTIPLE times :)

Quite enjoyable, with lovely cinematography and a plot that moved along well. The characters all have their secrets, and half the fun is trying to decide who has the biggest secret. The performances were all enjoyable- I especially liked the teenager Seamus. The end? Surprising, yes, but nothing earth-shattering.

First of all, you get to see beautiful footage of Ireland. Yay. (Yep. Sheep grazing on the mountain and everything!)

Emma decides at the last minute to not join her best friend Kerry on a trip to Ireland. While there, Kerry washes up on the beach dead.

Emma travels to the country to try and find out what really happened to her. She feels that the police did not do enough.

This movie rolls right along with you gaining some knowledge of how people from small villages in other countries conduct themselves.
It's a very different way of life there and Emma just wants answers. (I did imagine myself there blowing in like a tornado with my strong willed personality pissing off all the locals making demands left and right. Lol Hmmmmmm)

Everyone seems to have their secrets but even so Emma does gain a couple of new friends that help her during her investigation and are very kind to her.

Then...BAM!!!

Note: I gave the movie 5 stars even though I didn't know any of the actors and usually it takes quite a bit to impress me. I decided to go ahead with the full 5 star rating because of the excellent directing and lead in to the ending. Best actor in this film? Paul Hardiman by a landslide.

WARNING: DO NOT READ PAST THIS POINT IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN THE FILM.

Now, regarding my thoughts on the death of Kerry. This is modern times. WTH??? Why wasn't the area sectioned off and a CSI team called in to scrape under her nails and do a rape kit?
Then...you swab the inside of the cheeks of every single man she came in contact with during her stay there.

After several STRONG and determined interrogations of all who came in contact with her and then a matchy match to the DNA, then wah la!!!

If your a fan of Stana Katic-especially as Dectective Kate Beckett- you might just find this early movie of Stana a dark trip into her groundwork for the future role in Castle.
Like I said the movie is dark and not that good- Stana carries the movie and watching her in this -now that I have watched her in Castle and other movies- was interesting to watch the contrast.
So, if your fan and the price is not high- add it to your collection.

The plot of the story itself is not perfect but Stana Katic's brilliance really made this worth watching...the other actress, (whose name I will eventually insert) who plays Kerry was also very competent and the other players were convincing in their roles. This film could have been great had the writer taken the time to overcome some glaring plot points...who travels all the way to a country to investigate their friend's murder then suddenly decides it wasn't...I'm hoping this was done to create a possibility for a sequel, because otherwise it does not make much sense. The writer/director mentions something about violence against women in the bonus feature of the DVD but I am not sure what the message is supposed to be, the entire town completely disregarding the evidence of a crime speaks more about their own moral compass and apathy to foreigners than violence against women, but then again I could be wrong.

Just watched this on a rainy Saturday by the fire, and found it very atmospheric indeed. The moody landscape views are the best thing about it imo. There's a sense of fascination with Ireland and with Irish music. It was like seeing my own place through new eyes.
The story follows a decent enough emotional trajectory, for the main character at least. But as others have mentioned there's a huge plot hole in the way the Gardaí supposedly dealt with a death that clearly should have been highly suspicious. An American tourist's body washes up on the shore, battered and half-naked, and the response seems to have been a collective shrug. Ah sure... you know how it is with these young ones.
Note to future American scriptwriters purporting to write authentic Irish dialogue: To bring someone from A to B in your car is to give them 'a lift'. Not 'a ride'. A ride here is something else entirely, and no Irishman who values his facial features will ask a strange woman if they need 'a ride' in his car. Also, here nobody drowns in 'the ocean'. We know the word but never use it. It's 'the sea', folks. And then there's the elderly man with the heavy Kerry accent talking about his son who, unaccountably, has a sharp Northern accent. What's that about? But admittedly, everything I've mentioned in this paragraph is something that might bother a native but would probably sail right past an international audience.
I saw the final twist coming, but I'd still give a lot of credit for how well it was portrayed and acted. If the film was in danger of drowning in its own melancholy landscapes at times, the final scenes sent it out on a good strong narrative punch.
A good effort, overall. Different, and worth a look.
