It starts of slowly, with a big emphasis on style, almost over substance. India, looses her father on her 18th birthday, and a mysterious uncle appears during the funeral, and stays a while. Set on the grounds of a large mansion, the movie seamlessly incorporates the beautiful house and gardens in a very sinister plot. The cinematography is very stylish, and although it is clear that the family is very wealthy - wealth itself is not a central plot component, except perhaps for the scene with "Aunt Julie".
The movie spans a few days, and the plot unravels slowly; but the movie is strangely gripping. It has shades of "The Talented Mr Ripley", but the plot is not as complex with regards to motive and means.
