Robin Williams is mesmerizing in this absorbing thriller as Sy, “the photo guy,” who has painstakingly developed photographs for the Yorkin family since their son was a baby. Eventually, the lonely, somewhat obsessive Sy convinces himself he's part of the Yorkin family. But when it turns out that the picture-perfect family is not what they seem, Sy’s focus goes from obsession to terror.
