Excellent Story
30 May 2018 | by contrarymary-57121See all my reviews

I was hesitant to watch this but I shouldn't have been. The acting is wonderful from Natalie Dormer to the supporting cast. All of the girls were excellent. The story can be a bit muddled here and there, but without giving too much, it's the perfect storyline of a suspense movie. Yes, questions are left open ended but that's what makes it good for me. I don't like perfectly knitted endings. Especially since it's based on a true mystery.
