Toronto doctor Helen Matthews, mourning the death of her husband, retreats to the isolated island cabin where they'd spent some of their most cherished moments together. Her reverie is cut short when a mysterious man, Will, washes ashore with a bullet in his shoulder. As he recuperates, the two develop a tentative connection, though Will refuses to explain what happened. When a severe storm traps them on the island as Will's would-be killer returns, their ability to trust each other then becomes a matter of survival.

Limited Releases: No Doubt About This Week's Limited Releases

March 6th, 2015

Merchants of Doubt poster

This week, the limited release report is practically the Video on Demand report, as nearly all limited releases are also playing on Video on Demand. The rest are all documentaries, which rarely earn any measure of mainstream success. Worse still, most of the non-documentaries are earning bad reviews, so their box office chances are even worse. Faults is probably the film with the best chance at finding an audience in theaters, but that's not saying much. These Final Hours is also earning great reviews, but it doesn't have the star power that Faults has. Of the documentaries, both An Honest Liar and Merchants of Doubt are worth checking out. More...
