Very disturbing and convincingly scary story

  • Excerpt: Movie was impressive as it deals with issues everybody certainly has when tries to get rid of painful memories and rise above them - but these were so extreme ones, from a cult that mentally and physically abused our heroine's innocence and will to believe in goodness.

  • Summary: An okay story about a young woman who escapes a cult and tries to right her life with her sister. Through flashbacks, we see the horrors she went through as she tries to readjust to a normal life, but has difficulty fitting in and dissecting what is real and what isn't.

  • Summary: A decent movie that I have heard good things about. I liked the story a lot. It was unique an told well. Better than winters bone in every way. The ending was pretty dumb but at least it was not a cop out. Those that want something that is fresh, check it out.

  • Summary: This is an emotionally tight and tense drama. It's the kind of tense that boils underneath the surface, in a psychological manner. I was glued to this film right from the start and haven't stopped thinking about it since.

  • Summary: It's a bit of a 'nothing' film really, one that if you try to explain the plot to someone you end up going "Um, well not a lot happened come to think of it..." A girl leaves a cult.

Phenomenal but disturbing

  • Summary: Saw this at the NZ Film Festival last night and it blew me away. Have been thinking about it ever since. It's not an easy watch and the subject matter is rather grim, however there are light moments in the dark and the phenomenal direction and performances of the cast, particularly the breathtaking...

Stunning

  • Summary: A darkly laid-back examination of displacement and vulnerability, and the attempt to come to terms with traumatic events. The acting, without exception, is excellent, and the seeming authenticity of the cult member's lifestyle and residence is absolutely gripping.
