I wasn't really expecting that plot twist at the end of the movie!!!The movie's pacing was really slow and I think some parts of it wasunnecessary. The ending was really good and it really gets everyone'sattention. Looking forward to a spin-off or possibly a sequel??? Ithink Jonathan Baker did OK for a first timer, but there are rooms forimprovement.

Inconceivable was actually good.Acting was superb from Cage.His forteis technically found in drama.Although it didn't spark with the kind offierce exchange between two ladies ironically marying one man.But thelesson is well learned.Actually there is a diachotomy between being amother and mothering.7/10 is fair,Cage was superb,thats exactly what isexpected from a man in such situation

I'm not sure who decided to have Jonathan Baker direct this film, butit was a huge mistake. Considering he was also the producer, he shouldhave just left it at that - and the small role he also had as a memberof the cast (Barry). Was it too much responsibility for one novicefilmmaker to undertake? Certainly. Was it a mistake to have him in thistype of film as his directorial debut? Absolutely.
The pace of this film was *very* slow. Had I played this at 1.5x fasterspeed, it may have been more enjoyable. His selection of the score wasterrible, if not clearly absent in parts that it should have beenpresent.
The story itself, although done before, did hold my attention and Ifound it interesting, primarily from the only actor that was the mostconvincing, Nicky Whelan as Katie. Clearly she is the one that heldthis movie together.
Now of course, Faye Dunaway's small role was performed on point, butthat comes expected with an actor of her caliber.
What was disappointing however was the rest of the cast, particularlyGina Gershon as Angela, and Nicolas Cage as Brian.
I'm a fan of Gina, but I felt she struggled with her role in this one,just as Nicolas did, of which I am also a long time fan of his. I haveto admit, this is the first film I actually wished Mr. Cage over- actedhis performance as he is well know to do so in his previous films.
What's more shocking is how these two seasoned A-list actors acceptedthese roles. I would assume after reading the script, it sounded muchbetter than it was directed, so thus their lack of excitement andconvincement in their roles I blame fully on the director.
Had this film been directed by someone else, I feel it would have beena huge success and much more enjoyable.
At the end of the day, Jonathan Baker can add an undeserved notch tohis directors chair, Nicky Whelan can add a well acted and deservedpositive entry to her acting resume, and Nicolas Cage and Gina Gershonshould hide this notch from their actors chairs.
A generous 7/10 for an interesting script, held together primarily byNicky Whelan. It's a shame this film ended up as a lost opportunity tobe much greater. For that matter, it's inconceivable.
A mysterious young woman, Katie (Nicky Whelan), and her daughter move to a new town to escape her past and quickly befriends Angela Morgan (Gina Gershon), a mother of one who longs for a bigger family. As their lives become intricately entwined, Angela and her husband, Brian, (Nicolas Cage), invite Katie to live in their guest-house to serve as their nanny. Over time, the blossoming friendship between the two women spirals into a dangerous obsession as Katie becomes overly attached to the Morgans' daughter. Enduring lies and manipulations, Angela and Brian realize that sweet Katie is actually trying to destroy their family from within.
