Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
A woman on the run from the mob is reluctantly accepted in a small Colorado town. In exchange, she agrees to work for them. As a search visits town, she finds out that their support has a price. Yet her dangerous secret is never far away...
A couple lose their young son when he falls out of a window while they are having sex in another room. The mother's grief consigns her to hospital, but her therapist husband brings her home intent on treating her depression himself. To confront her fears they go to stay at their remote cabin in the woods, "Eden", where something untold happened the previous summer. Told in four chapters with a prologue and epilogue, the film details acts of lustful cruelty as the man and woman unfold the darker side of nature outside and within. Written by
Peter Brandt Nielsen
I loved this movie, not because of the gore and violence, but because it's... well I don't know how to say it, but it moved me in a lot more ways than the usual movie, this movie makes Tarantino look like a mainstream instructor, this is as much an art piece as it is a movie, it'll make you feel things that you never thought a movie would ever make you feel.
I for one are tired of all the mainstream "good guy's life is good, bad guy ruins it, good guy takes revenge" predictable movies, sadly it seems to be what 99% of the American population prefere, we seem to go to the movies to get a good feeling of justice will always prevail and good conquers bad and so on.
I'm pretty sure that the movie will be received pretty well outside of the states and Australia, probably because our country is excellent at keeping anything that doesn't paint the world pink with flowers all over it, far away from our narrow minded and fragile minds.
