Jean Seberg manipulates Barry Stokes in her peculiar relationship with stepdaughter Marisol
21 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This picture is a psychological thriller. It is either intentionally ambiguous or else muddled. I'm inclined to think it's intentional because Jean Seberg turns in an effective understated performance. The picture is really hers. She could act. The next best performance is that of Marisol playing her stepdaughter, Chris. She has to display a broader range of emotion because she is recovering from a rape that is shown in flashbacks. Barry Stokes has a good physical presence, but his acting here is minimal. He doesn't really generally convey his feelings or a shift in his feelings. We know how he feels through some of his actions and dialog, but not through his portrayal, which lacks subtlety.

Seberg's husband has left her a year earlier, and she lives with her stepdaughter, Marisol, who is recovering from a rape. Stokes is an itinerant wanderer, willing to steal and use women. Is he or is he not the serial killer operating in that region? The film poses that mystery. I guessed a good deal of the ending about halfway through, but that doesn't really change one's enjoyment or lack thereof of this movie.

Just what is Seberg after? In what way is she using Marisol? What's the corruption she intends for her? What actually is their relationship? This is where the movie is ambiguous at times, because Seberg apparently has a lesbian thing for the girl, and this we see in an incipient way on the screen and are also told of when Seberg recounts first having seen the girl as a 10-year old. Seberg also likes being the girl's comforter when her recollections are triggered by rain. She even turns the lights on and off to scare the girl. But Seberg also hates her husband so much that she wants to degrade the girl and use her to punish Stokes and vice versa. Stokes she takes on as a lover and a subservient worker around the estate. Most muddled of all is what she is after between Stokes and her stepdaughter and why. I'll have to watch this again to figure that out, if I can.
