Storyline

Sarah and her husband have moved to a house in the country; their son, Loic, a college student, chaffs at the isolation and a tragedy occurs. A year later, Sarah lives alone in the house; distracted by grief, she's sent home from her hospital job at 2 AM. Police on the road warn her of burglaries in the area, then a young man, much like her son, flags her down: he surprised a burglar at his house, and he's being chased. He is Arthur. Sarah gives him a lift, and soon a car is in pursuit. A long night ensues with flashbacks to crimes and chases; can Sarah protect Arthur as she would her own son? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Unnerving if Obvious
31 January 2016 | by scythertitusSee all my reviews

Without spoilers, to say straight off that you will see all the reveals in this movie coming a mile off and frankly; it doesn't matter! While you could see this film as being all about the mystery of the plot it is much more about the characters and their relationship to each other.

Throughout the movie this dynamic changes and it is always fascinating to watch, constantly pushing and questioning your own perceptions and how you identify with these characters. You know a film is doing a good job in getting you invested in its characters when you at once want them to kiss and at the same time hope that at least one of them stabs the other.

While not exactly slow-paced, the simple story may make some viewers restless, especially if you are all about plot and not character. But if you have any interest in people and why they do the things they do then this should be an enjoyable ride, with enough suspense to keep you on the edge of your seat, even when you start to lean back to consider the implications of the latest reveal.

Overall this film is a joy to watch and does a lot with a little, highly recommended.
