Takes forever to settle in, plus Alicia Silverstone alert
22 February 2020 | by paul-allaerSee all my reviews

"The Lodge" (2019 release; 108 min.) brings the story of Richard and his teenage kids Aden and Mia. As the movie opens, Laura and the kids come over to Richard's and Richard tells her that he wants to finalize the divorce so he can marry his girlfriend Grace. Let's just say that Laura does not take this well. We then go to "6 months later", and Richard is trying to convince the kids that the 4 of them (Richard, Grace, Aden and Mia) should spend the days leading up to Christmas in the lodge away in the countryside. With hesitation, the kids agree... At this point we are 15 min. into the movie but to tell you more of the plot would spoil your viewing experience, you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.

Couple of comments: this movie is co-directed by Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala, Franz made the excellent 2014 thriller "Goodnight Mommy", so that was a good sign. Here they bring a scary movie in a familiar setting, the remotely located lodge. The lodge is dark and cold, and did I say isolated? This a plot-heavy movie, so I am not in a position to say a whole lot more without spoiling, so I shan't. Alicia Silverstone alert! It wasn't until the movie end credits rolled that I noticed that the small role of Laura is played by none other than Alicia Silverstone. Silverstone, now in her early 40s, is a quarter century removed from "Clueless", and still going at it with some regularity. Riley Keough (It Comes At Night; American Honey) is quite good in the main role of Grace. Other than that, this movie is okay (not great, but okay), but does take a very long time to really settle in.

"The Lodge" premiered at the 2019 Sundance film festival (yes, over a year ago) to positive acclaim, and is just now getting a limited theater release (given the movie's Christmas setting, I cannot understand why this wasn't released last October or November). The Friday early evening screening where I saw this at here in Cincinnati was not attended well (6 people in total), and I really don't see this playing in the theaters much longer. If you like a scary movie, please hold your expectations fairly low, and then I'd suggest you check this out in the theater (if you still can, on VOD, or eventually on DVD/Blu-ray, and draw your own conclusion.
