Storyline

When Abby (Tuppence Middleton) returns to her hometown of Niagara Falls after her mother dies, she becomes obsessed with a fragmented memory from her childhood, a kidnapping she believes she was witness to. She is reunited with her estranged younger sister, Laure (Hannah Gross), and they attempt to settle their mother's estate involving the sale of the family motel, but Abby's compulsive desire to reconcile her past grows increasingly out of control. Albert Shin's latest is an intense and taut psychological thriller that exposes the seedy underbelly of structural systems through the point of view of its dynamic female protagonists. Middleton delivers a stellar and complex performance as a woman obsessed with her troubled past while trying to uncover a crime to which she's convinced she was an accomplice. Shin and co-writer James Schultz craft a sharp, suspenseful drama, equipped with twists and turns, culminating with a climax that will leave you thinking for days. Written by Toronto International Film Festival

Magic or Tragic at Niagra?
29 February 2020 | by pkdyer6519See all my reviews

I can't remember ever watching a bad Canadian Film or Tv Series. Canadians are very careful what they pump money into, unlike some US dross. This is another example of an original, well crafted, intriguing little mystery. Tuppence Middleton plays Abby, who returns to Niagra after the death of her Mother. Selling her mum's motel she remembers witnessing an abduction when she was seven and decides to play detective. It's a very compelling movie that keeps you guessing where its going to end up, watching her behaviour you think there's more to her than meets the eye. One of the best films this year for its originality.
