Storyline

In the film, Ray (Skarsgård), Claire (Riseborough) and their seven-year-old daughter, Zoe, are an average American family in Kingsville, North Carolina - except they have existed in a bomb shelter since escaping a day of devastation that changed everything. For 301 days, they have transformed their cement prison into a home, holding on to memories of the past and hope for a normal life someday. And for 301 days, the family has eluded what looms above the surface - the heavy breathing and booming footsteps that punctuate the night, threatening their fragile existence. All the while, the family has managed to stay hidden. Until now. Now their safe haven has been breached... and something is coming for them. Written by John McLaughlan

Who are the real monsters?
13 October 2015 | by See all my reviews

Hidden posits one simple question, who are the real monsters? What hides beneath the facade we as people and as a society present to the world?

This film looks at the nature of what it means to human and asks us to examine how we define our humanity. Are we tolerant of difference or are we frightened by it? How does this shape our interactions with those who are different from us? Are our assumptions about others really a damning reflection of our true selves or a vindication of how we value life no matter its form?

This is a subtle, slow paced, emotionally moving film. The question it asks is done so quietly and as a consequence its message may be lost on those not paying attention.

The acting from the cast is generally excellent all round. Its hard to find fault with the performances and I'd say given the environmental limitations imposed, the quality of acting is even more remarkable.

Are there any shortcomings? This really is a somewhat subjective question when it comes to Hidden. If you like your science fiction thrillers fast paced then this is a shortcoming. If you expect every question to be answered then this film may, once again, frustrate you. I would say personally I did find Hidden occasionally, overly sentimental but this is a small consideration.

In summary, for the most part, Hidden is an above average film. Its intelligent and its well directed and acted. Its message is a timely one too given the intolerance and cruelty people and societies seem to demonstrate on a daily basis towards one another. Eight out of ten from me.
