Lakeview Terrace (2008)

It has its flaws, sure. I'm really not that crazy about the ending. And I think it might've been stronger had it been more from the perspective of this young couple. And had it been a straight drama and not quite the thriller it was trying to be. But it has some really strong writing. The moments and conversations between this young couple struggling with their first house, their parents, their relationship, starting a family and now their neighbor are really nice. I'm sure the casting of Patrick Wilson and Kerry Washington, two super strong actors, doesn't hurt. I've always been a huge fan of Kerry Washington. Ever since Our Song. She's just natural and flawless. It's worth a rental to at least just watch the break down of these three really well drawn characters.
