Two sisters, Grace and Violet, bound together by more than blood, live a reclusive life in a large mansion, detached from society and reality too. They have a plan. It's hardly conventional, but the outcome nine months later is all that counts. Whatever they do they must not fall in love with the man that they choose to ensnare. Set in contemporary New England.

just awful
8 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've rarely had a more unpleasant experience watching a movie than watching this one. The two sisters are Seriously Messed Up. We know that from, what, minute 3 of the movie? We never get much past that. Despite an hour and a half of material, much of it laden with seemingly significant flashbacks, we never quite get to what the hell is actually behind all this gauzy art-house pretentiousness.

It's great to enjoy a movie, and clearly some people do enjoy this one. I'm happy for you if you're one of them. Seriously, though, if you are inspired by this movie to go out and make something similar, please consider making the following improvements on it so that the rest of us can enjoy it too:

* At some point, get around to explaining the premise. We want to know what is happening. Being a tease is fine for the first X minutes of a movie, but not for the entire thing.

* Let the audience connect (as in relate) to your characters sooner or later. Otherwise, we can't care about them. If they aren't real to us, their emotions are irrelevant to us.

* Offer something beyond unpleasantness and tragedy, or prepare for obscurity (meaning, we aren't coming). We don't always need a shiny, happy ending, but let some sunshine at least threaten to break through somewhere along the line. Pure bleakness is always going to be a tough sell. Life already offers us that for free, if we simply go the wrong direction. Depicting it as invincible is depressing -- and unrealistic.

If those kinds of major failures don't throw you off, maybe you'll like this movie. Otherwise, trust the low rating. It's deserved.
