Quotes

Jennifer: Don't you think it's a little cult-like? I mean, I didn't think it at the time, but now in retrospect? You know, the whole group thing. Worshiping pain, endurance, it's a bit religious, don't you think?
Mrs. G: Really... really, Jenny?... I expected so much more of you.

Deserve to be one of the front runners of 2018!
30 May 2018 | by sanjidparvezSee all my reviews

This is deeply moving & a remarkably honest explorations of a disturbing & heart-wrenching subject matter that we don't get to see in cinema often these days. Based on her own story, the director was amazingly brave enough to look back & shared it with such grace & smart narratives. The cast was spot on & delivered some great performances i.e. Laura Dern on the lead & her younger self portrayed by Isabelle Nélisse. Undoubtedly, one of the very best films of 2018 so far.
