Almanac (2010) movie review

Life Changes


We can change everything in life in one moment ......Who we love....... Who we trust...... and who we will be......John Ashcroft (Matthew Scott) is a young lawyer haunted by his mother's death and estranged father's behaviour. He encounters a new client, Mr Andrews (Roger Adam Smith) living alone in a dark and isolated castle. This new client relationship quickly becomes a dangerous game of cat toying with mouse as Mr Andrew's forces John to face his fears in an attempt to save a long lost love, Rochelle Baxter (Helen Doulaveras) from her death.

Afraid and confused, John attempts to find clarity.
