The Aftermath of Physical Invasion
25 April 2011 | by See all my reviews

Mia Goldman both wrote and directed this fine little film that deals with the butterfly effect of an event affecting a whole family. The subtlety of the film is enhanced by unforced, subtle performances by a solid cast and further enhanced by a quality of filming (cinematographer Dennis Maloney) that creates disturbing images without obsessing over them.

Photographer Izzy (Robin Tunney) is deeply in love with Peter (Joel Edgerton) whose lives are brutally assaulted when Izzy is raped. Unable to cope with the concept and in the midst of a healing phase, Izzy and Peter breakup, consoled by Izzy's mother Arlene (Cybil Shepherd) and father John (Elliott Gould). Once the incident that is the driver of this story is revealed and discussed, the ramifications are bitter. How Izzy and Peter survive the ordeal is beautifully and subtly written and acted. Cameo roles by Scott Wilson and Shirley Knight add depth to the story. This film has some very disturbing moments, but the subject of rape has always and will always be a disturbing topic. How writer/director Goldman handles this is one of the finest moments on film.

It is a pleasure to see Robin Tunney, best known now for her ongoing role on televisions 'The Mentalist', tackle a role so demanding and make us stay with her character all the way. Joel Edgerton is also exception in a tough role. In all, this is one of those unnoticed films that deserves a larger audience.
