The setting is a gorgeous Florida key, and a family run hotel business. The beach, the crystal clear waters, the jungle all are beautiful. I request that you use spoiler tags for any discussion of the plot, and a clear text warning that plot discussion is concealed therein. Ben Mendelsohn gives a truly…
