Director: Brad Anderson
Starring: Woody Harrelson, Emily Mortimer, Ben Kingsley, Kate Mara, Eduardo Noriega

A husband and wife go on a train trip through Russia and find their fates intermingled with a mysterious couple and a police inspector.

I can't give any more plot description than that, unfortunately. This is a movie you need to watch from beginning to end or risk missing something important, and then you should watch it again to appreciate the full effect of it. This is a true thriller that starts out like the train that takes such precedence in the film - slow and steady and gaining speed until the very last stop. It's got some surprises along the way, too, and I love it when a movie surprises me. :)

First seen: on video, November 2008
