Not sure where this was supposed to go but it was awful.
With a great cast (DeNiro, Norton, and Jovovich) this film had some potential.
Stone is incarcerated and DeNiro is his case officer. Jovovich plays well as Norton's airhead wife who throws herself at DeNiro. A definite change for her and her 'tough guy' roles in Resident Evil.
In fact, all the roles here are well done but the movie goes nowhere.
One of those you just watch and wait for things to happen but they never do.
We expect some repurcussions on DeNiro for doing the prisoner's wife, there are none. There is a bit of excitement at the end and we can presume who the perpetrators are but nowhere near the climax we expected.
Another waste of talent.

It amazes me when great actors choose to make movies without endings. This movie has an interesting premise, and the actors obviously are/were capable of making the movie believable and good. So the fact that this movie was neither means that the script must have been awful! So why did they agree to make it. This movie has no voice, and has no purpose. It poorly tells a story about what happens over the course of a few months in the lives of four people that we are never given any reason to care about. Then when the final twist of the plot takes place they essentially show the faces of the four people and roll credits, there is no reaction, no response to their current state of being, and no redemption for the people that have wasted the last 100 minutes watching almost nothing.
