Short Takes: Dream House
We never glimpse the residence retiring publisher Daniel Craig and his family upgrade from. That’s the first clue to cracking this thriller which owes more than a little to Shutter Island. After decades of administering dull, well-intentioned message movies, it’s nice to see director Jim Sheridan (My Left Foot, In America) finally deliver the goods with an old fashioned haunted house genre picture. With: Rachel Weisz, Naomi Watts, and Elias Koteas.
