A woman in love with music finds herself trapped between a husband jealous of her success and a brother-in-law with a deadly secret in this independent thriller. Lucian (Andrew Borba) is a talented but arrogantly self-important musician and composer who has recently released an album in collaboration with his wife, a free-spirited violinist and singer named Gypsy (Annunziata Gianzero). While the album has become a critical and commercial success, Lucian is unhappy with the fact that many have credited Gypsy with the album's popularity and Gypsy has already been booked for a lucrative solo… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A hackneyed, by-the-numbers race against the clock to stop a serial killer from striking again."
‑ Megan Lehmann, New York Post
"If [Wilkinson] is at times arty and self-conscious, he shows promise as a deep-digging and personal filmmaker."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"It'd be a far more interesting movie without the detective...it's a conventional, commercial cop/killer movie when he's on screen and an edgy, passionate one without him."
‑ Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone, TheMovieChicks.com
"The wintery New England landscape is the most striking thing about the film, but it's not interesting enough to justify watching it for 100 minutes."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"A husband's jealousy, a brother's fury make for a good story marred by a woefully inadequate budget."
‑ Harvey S. Karten, Compuserve
"The story is so crowded with incident and implication as to be both nonsensical and impossible to act, so the actors, when they are not bursting into fits of temper, smile mysteriously."
‑ A.O. Scott, New York Times
"A disappointing hodgepodge that fails to tie up its conflicting strands of family drama and suspense thriller."
‑ Mark Olsen, L.A. Weekly
"A small but bracing breath of fresh air; if a little under-told, its problems at least stem from a creative gait that's refreshingly out of lockstep with the Hollywood-ized regurgitation of indie film convention."
‑ Brent Simon, Entertainment Today
"A bunch of loosely gathered storylines strung together with mostly rote dialogue, stilted performances and a disquieting sense of meaninglessness."
‑ Tim Cogshell, Boxoffice Magazine
"A beautiful to look at thriller/drama, but lacking a good story to go with its gorgeous Cape Cod winter setting."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"An atmospheric but insufferably soapy drama."
‑ Michael Rechtshaffen, Hollywood Reporter
"Writer-director Mark Wilkinson gracefully elides backstories while arranging his converging narratives into a neat fugue, but the overall preciousness of his conception is suffocating."
‑ David Ng, Village Voice
"Like an old relative you haven't seen in ten years, you know the story of Dischord, but enough has changed to make for an interesting visit."
‑ Larry Carroll, Countingdown.com
"A flawed but ultimately worthwhile first directorial effort."
‑ Jules Brenner, Filmcritic.com
