Invasion of privacy and domestic spying take on terrifying meaning in this unsettling tale of voyeurism. A young man has a secret obsession for a beautiful woman. By planting hidden cameras and listening devices in her home, he learns her most intimate secrets in order to manipulate her into a relationship that she innocently permits. Shot entirely through hidden cameras, including a "body cam," Alone With Her takes the audience to an extreme level of voyeuristic intimacy, exploiting both our fear of being watched and our compulsion to watch.

I saw this movie at Fantasia in Montreal and was blown away! This is very ballsy film-making. Nicholas takes big chances, not only with the movie's style (shot completely through hidden cameras) but also with its pacing and horrifying climax.
The film left me very disturbed and days afterward was still haunting me.
Further, the film-making inspired me to strive for something fresh and original in my own work -- to break some rules.
In terms of performances, the two leads (Talancon and Hanks) are phenomenal. Completely real. And Jordana Spiro also kicks ass in her supporting role as Amy's best friend. Great work overall!
