Helen Mirrer. and it is enough
27 June 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

A teenager horror. nice, unrealistic but seductive for the performance of Helen Mirren who transforms her character in the lead pillar for sustain the film. the young actors are not bad but the script does not give many chances to a coherent image of revengers. so, a sort of mix between teenager film, suspense and few drops of horror. the tension works and the memories of viewer about difficult teachers are real useful in this case.
