Storyline

UNREQUITED is a psychological thriller and tells the story of Ben Jacobs, a troubled young man who, on his 18th birthday, has to leave the group home for "troubled teens" where he has been living for the past several months and move back in with his alcoholic mother. Upon his return, Ben soon discovers that his girlfriend, Jessica Morgan, has moved on with her life and is now dating an older college guy. Desperate for love and unable to cope with losing Jessica, Ben's troubled past catches up with him as he kidnaps her in an attempt to regain her affection. Spiraling out of control and on a very dangerous path, Ben must ultimately decide whether to let her go, or hold on to the one person he loves, even if it means destroying them both in the process.

Well acted and psychologically believable but offering little surprise
9 January 2016 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Troubled teenager Ben is released from a psychiatric hospital, returns home and hopes to pick up where he left off. But his mother neglects him, his beloved horse is not doing well and his former girlfriend is already seeing someone else. In an attempt to win her back, he drugs and kidnaps her.

A stupid plan of course, but Unrequited manages to make Ben's actions psychologically believable. Credit also goes to a young Michael Welch who is terrific in the lead role and who made me think of a younger Edward Norton.

On the down side, Unrequited starts off pretty slow and never really rewards us for our patience. Because as soon as the drama unfolds we can see where this is going. The second half of the film offers no surprises. So on the whole, it makes for an unsatisfying experience.
