107 minute running time and I could have cut out seven minutes to make the sacred 100 minute mark, but it wasn’t overly long, which is the case with nearly every movie made today. I liked this one, even though it’s a W.D. By movie (written and directed by the same guy).
It’s a sort of horror / thriller / mystery. Mental illness, stifling family relations (Mommie Dearest), island life (Jersey) … I liked the class angle (as always) … lead actress was good, really good, amazing red hair, I think she’s Irish, reminds me of Sally Hawkins … movie has a strange vibe which is kind of wonderful, thanks in part to the cinematographer.
It’s not a great movie, but it’s unusual and good enough to get a recommendation from me. Green light, go.
