A series of dirty bombs are set in LA. You have the choice to seal your home and protect yourself from the deadly airborne virus spreading its way across the city, or to wait for your partner to return from the epicentre of the attack to what they think is a safe haven. So when they return - what do you do? Do you let them in? Will they understand that letting them in means infecting you with the lethal virus too? And who can you trust? The authorities? The media? Your neighbours? This compelling and taut thriller raises these questions and more when married couple Lexi (Mary McCormack - ER, The West Wing and Brad (Rory Cochrane - A Scanner Darkly) have to face the unthinkable.

I very much enjoyed this movie. It has a feeling of realism to it rarely seen in modern cinema (United 93 is another example). The film focuses around one man and his actions following the explosion of several 'dirty bombs' in LA. He seals himself and another in his home, as instructed over haunting radio messages. The only problem being, his wife is outside and he cannot risk letting her in as she has come into contact with the toxic substance that is literally raining down on the city. The film raises alot of questions about human behaviour during a disaster. I wouldn't recommend this film to everyone, it is slowly paced, low budget, there are no action sequences, no humour, just a very gritty drama. Worth a watch
I've got a funny feeling that this film depicts very accurately what would happen in the wake of a major terrorist attack. The sense of confusion and isolation is brilliantly conjured up, and the two leads do an excellent job maintaining a believable relationship through layers of polythene. At this point in the crisis, there is hardly any talk of the perpetrators of the act, which is clearly the focus only of those who are comfortably removed from the immediate danger- those affected just seem to want to survive as best they can, and the bitter irony of following the well-meaning advice from family members and the harassed and heavy-handed authorities is brought home by the film’s closing scenes. Despite its backdrop of big events, “Right at Your Door” is a small-scale delight that remains taught and tense to the end; the kind of intimate thriller that “Hard Candy” tries and fails to be.
