“ i feel that rivalry wise Anna's character had ultimately lost to Katie's character no matter who in the end was marrying josh's character, there was a strain to that friendship and in the end it so beautifully broke in a uncomfortable way for both anna's character and katie's and i felt the characters played there parts well, im pulled to the film i enjoyed it and will probably buy it, it kind of reminds me of the sadness of another film i adored for its pain called closer look it up =)
