Not much of a story to moody eerie music
21 August 2019 | by gustheaffenSee all my reviews

Unfortunately we don't really know any of the background to the main character. They mention her going off some basic SSRI medication nothing that would be prescribed for someone completely off the rails. Could see a wealthy older man marrying a younger woman to care for the kid and be a companion after his wife smartly fled. The daughter was great and gave a very haunting performance. The main character just didn't do it for me. Her tattoo on her shoulder was a hideous distraction and I have a hard time buying her mental illness spiral. Husband was unsympathetic and his demise was expected. The music was overwhelming and used too much for effect. Overall a watchable but pretty average story.
