    Thought this review was right on and mirrored my thoughts on the film. Anthony Hopkins and Ciaran Hinds “stole the show”. I wanted to see it because Hopkins was in it. I was not disappointed. I chuckled at the reference to “The Exorcist”. I agree with the review that the journalist was an unnecessary and distracting part of the story. If you are a Hopkins fan the movie is worth a look but it doesn’t match “Silence of the Lambs” for sheer terror. Good review.
