Review: Visually reminiscent of Oscar winner Ida, this film may not be filmed in black and white, but the photography is stark and unrelenting. The premise is suggested while not overtly acknowledged, which lends the film a bit of mystery. Those two elements combine to create a film that looks like it could be most engaging.
It has the sensibilities of a film that pleases critics, but it’s not the kind of movie that breaks out from a more bountiful pack of contenders to shine through for nominations.
