A darkness swirls at the center of a world-renowned dance company, one that will engulf the artistic director, an ambitious young dancer, and a grieving psychotherapist. Some will succumb to the nightmare. Others will finally wake up.
Chloë Grace Moretz,
Set in contemporary Chicago, amid a time of turmoil, four women with nothing in common except a debt left behind by their dead husbands' criminal activities, take fate into their own hands, and conspire to forge a future on their own terms.
Sam, intelligent but without purpose, finds a mysterious woman swimming in his apartment's pool one night. The next morning, she disappears. Sam sets off across LA to find her, and along the way he uncovers a conspiracy far more bizarre.

As a cinephile, it is common for me to try to find what's good in every movie. This one made that search a little harder. Aesthetically pleasing scenes with lots of close-ups coupled with an ethereal and current soundtrack were the only silver linings in an otherwise nonsensical and often muddled film. The story seemed unable to find, and stick to a central message; was it "Girl Power"? Or a statement on the apparent death of privacy to make room for the digital age.
In a nut shell, my high hopes for the movie were cut down by an inability to convey a message, and an ultimately confused storyline.
