All Good Things

What it's about:

Set against the extravagance and excess of New York City in the 80s, David Marks, the son of a powerful real estate tycoon, marries a beautiful working class student, Katie. Together, they flee the city for country life in Vermont - only to be lured back by David’s father.

Upon their return, Katie goes back to medical school and begins to make a life for herself. But, as Katie becomes increasingly independent, David mysteriously turns more violent and controlling. Family secrets are slowly revealed, just as Katie disappears without a trace. Years later, when David's best friend turns up dead, the 20-year-old case is reopened, with David as the main suspect, and the Marks family’s dark secrets pave the way to a disturbing truth.
What the critics thought:

"Kirsten Dunst is so good here as a woman at a loss to understand who her husband really is, and what the true nature of his family involves."
- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

"Dunst is not the only person doing quality work in All Good Things, but she is the only one worth watching."
- Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle

"Jarecki knows how to make scenes of boisterous family reunions and quiet moments between lovers engaging: He fares less well, though, when the story takes a dark turn."
- Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald

It was the perfect love story. Until it became the perfect crime.

you gave it two stars and your critique - if it can even be called that, when u gave a summary and two positive reviews and one mildly negative. then your rating is two stars. no wonder i read and watch anyway.
