You Should Have Left

David Koepp teams up again with Kevin Bacon for another psychological thriller, the two worked together on Stir of Echoesway back in 1999. Now they get together to bring us another thriller, but does it match up to their previous work? Kevin Bacon stars as Theo Conroy, a middle-aged man with a much younger actress wife, Susanna (Seyfried), and an adorable 6-year-old daughter, Ella. All the marketing for the movie tells us the couple are having issues with their marriage, but honestly, they really don’t show you a marriage in trouble at all.
