Eight teenage girls become trapped in an endless birthday party after a massive (imaginary?) earthquake. The girls' sanity and psyches dissolve as they run out of food and water. Eventually, they regress to their baser instincts, exploiting each other's fears and insecurities.
This film is getting a lot of unnecessary politically charged criticism that has really nothing to do with what makes this film "broken" for a lack of a better word. The acting is so-so. I at least believe them often enough that I forgive a bad reading here or there. There are plenty of loose metaphors scattered about and really this is the main issue. This film wanders in a setting that's to small to really get going.
And there is the major "elephant in the room"... regrading the windows.... ugh. I get it "wUt iF wE GEt cOMfoRtableeeeeee."
If you watch a lot of movies already give this a shot maybe you'll get something out of it. If you're a more casual viewer skip it
Its 'Lord of the flies' meets 'The Hole'
