good small indie thriller
19 January 2019 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Jackie brings her wife Jules to her family cottage in Ontario, Canada for their one year anniversary. Her childhood friend Sarah still lives nearby with her husband Daniel. Sarah warns Jules of Jackie's possible involvement with their friend Jenny's death. Jackie appeases Jules' concerns and then pushes her off a cliff.

I really like this movie for the most part. There are a few speed bumps along the way. The first comes with the rowboat race. I didn't really get what Jackie was doing until her crazed thinking starts to show. Logic is not necessary and she's more logical than one can expect. Jules' submissive fear is compelling although I would probably cast Martha MacIsaac in the role instead. Brittany Allen's height makes her less victim-like. There is a tranquilizer dart inserted into the movie at a prominent place. I may have missed it but it needs to be set up in a foreshadowing. It's a big piece of the puzzle and it comes out of nowhere for me. As for returning to the cliff, I figured it'd be more poetic to have Jules push Jackie off the cliff. Hannah Emily Anderson has a nice quiet madness to her performance. I really like the simple indie horror vibe.
