Teenage voyeur Hallam Foe spies on his stepmother, Verity, through binoculars, finding himself irresistibly attracted to her even as he becomes convinced she murdered his mother. When Hallam flees to the city and meets a woman who resembles his mother, his binocular-spying obsessions begin anew. But when Verity and his father track him down, will the truth surface?

I guess I'd call this a coming-of-age psychodrama. Pretty much the whole movie had a dark feel to it with dim lighting, overcast days, and rain. There were a few happy moments for our hero and a lot of unhappy ones. The only surprises I had here were provided by the twisty turnabout relationship of our hero and his mom-look-alike lover. Actually, they were more like dull surprises, but were a welcome change-up from the seemingly relentless unpleasantness I was determined to watch. This would probably have been an eye-opener in the sixties or early seventies.

Jamie Bell plays a very disturbed yet tragic character - a person devastated by the death of his mother who develops an unhealthy habit of spying on people. He also develops an unhealthy habit of obsession - with his step mother and, upon leaving home, a hotel worker who bears a striking resemblance to his mother. Oedipus would be proud.

Character-Driven

Right from the get-go, the film establishes that the protagonist (Jamie Bell) is a strange but very sad character because he doesn’t know how to cope with his mother’s death. He acts out by spying on people, breaking into people’s homes and going through their things, all the while jotting down what he has seen, felt, and done after such actions. He also happens to believe that his stepmother (Claire Forlani), his father’s former secretary, killed his mother. That first part of the film was compelling because Bell was able to make the audience feel for him even though the things he does are creepy and borderline criminal. I found it difficult to blame the protagonist because not only is he really young and not aware of the consequences of his actions, I could tell that he really did love ...
