Twitter Capsule: Despite the talent attached, feels like a decade-old script. And despite her Emmy, Linney's subpar. Goes where you think.

VOR:   Rather than the Emmy attention raising the movie's status, this utterly quotidian drama makes the Emmys look very odd.

Not yet reviewed in full. Grade: D
