Haist. If I were in Sam shoes and I met this very hot and gorgeous person of the opposite sex who turns out to be my half-sibling, and I have no intentions of letting him know who I am, I would not make him fall in love with me.
I wanted to throttle Sam's neck.
How dare he?
He was the only one who knew about the situation. Frankie was so vulnerable.
I watched this film thinking this was the movie version of Dominick Dunne's PEOPLE LIKE US, but I was wrong. Anyways, I have no regrets watching this.
I felt for Lillian(Pfeiffer), Josh(Addario), Frankie(Banks) and Hannah(Wilde). Alright, alright. I felt for Sam(Pine) too.
I loved how the story was weaved and I must say, I love the way their father "watched over them".
No, I don't want to give spoilers, but here is the Storyline From imdb:
Sam has been keeping his distance from his father. When his father dies, he goes home for the funeral, and to see if his father left him any money so that he could bail himself out of his latest jam. But he learns that his father left all of his money to someone named Josh Davis. He finds him and learns that he is the troubled son of a woman named Frankie. Sam thinks she is his sister. He doesn't give the money cause he needs it. He makes contact with her but doesn't tell her who he is. Eventually they become friends and even helps Josh with his problems.
