Mysterious, malicious grifter makes a claim
12 July 2018 | by See all my reviews

There is an intriguing ambiguity to the stranger who rolls into Austin, Texas, claiming to be the daughter of a deceased country singer and inheriting some of her father's talent. The pent-up anger, pain and defiance bubbles below the surface but never froths into action which is its strength, and the viewer will begin to have a little empathy with the young woman as she tries to establish a connection to her new, foreign family keeping her at arms length. On the plus side we are only once given proper verbal conflict between the two leads - no manipulative or simplistic resolutions. However, the engrossing and edgy drama somehow fails to produce a vice like grip on the viewer by the end for instead we get a graphic act where the viewer is more of an observer at the scene of a despicable crime rather than of one in crystallized understanding of the precise motive. Still, it is a smart, tense movie with two good performances which make it work...just.
