User Reviews

 
Good, but hugely flawed.
30 July 2019 | by djmcgregorSee all my reviews

While the premise of the film doesn't hold up to too much scrutiny; on the surface it is a worthwhile attempt to highlight (and make us question) our ideas regarding innocence, learned behavior, and the selfish nature of interpersonal relationships.

*I wish I could end there, but I cannot submit a review of this movie without calling out what an ungrateful, selfish, manipulative POS the character Sophie is. I can't help but wonder how the movie would have played out if she had cared about anyone but herself. Even with events as they played out, her husband would be MUCH BETTER OFF finding a partner that actually cares about him and supports him rather than this self-obsessed nightmare, who acts on her impulses with no regard to reality and expects him to clean up her mess every time.
