Storyline

Plagued by the abuse of her past and the turmoil of failed intimate encounters, Laura struggles to find a lover and a sense of normalcy. Her beacon of hope comes in sixteen year-old Eva, a talented pianist disillusioned by the life her mother imposes upon her. An unlikely relationship is formed between the two and Eva becomes an obsession to Laura. In light of Eva's unhappiness, Laura convinces her to run away to her house and they soon find themselves caught within an intense entanglement. Manipulation, denial and codependency fuel what ultimately becomes a fractured dynamic that can only sustain itself for so long.

Another bold role taken on by a talented actress
21 September 2017 | by michaeljtrubicSee all my reviews

Evan Rachel Wood plays a very troubled character.

She is suffering, she is in pain.

We watch her interactions with other characters without understanding fully what is going on - we have to piece this together like a mystery because in fact it is.

It's a film that will bring viewers together afterwards for a discussion.

Fortunately she was at my screening to help with my questions.

Thanks to her, her co-stars and the filmmakers for accompanying it to 2017 Tiff.
