Storyline

Against the backdrop of insufferable domestic ennui, the soft-spoken former saleswoman and newlywed housewife, Hunter, is struggling to stretch the bars of her gilded cage, a lavish and immaculate modernist villa in New York, even though she seems to have it all. But, more and more, as sad Hunter tries, unsuccessfully, to meet her controlling family's expectations, compliance turns into submission, obedience transforms into obsession, and pica, a compulsive eating disorder, starts to take over. Now, swallowing non-nutritive objects and engaging in increasingly impossible tasks becomes Hunter's dangerous newfound addiction, and there's no telling how far she'll go to maintain a false and fleeting sense of power. Who can save Hunter from herself? Written by Nick Riganas

What could be a extraordinary movie....
11 April 2020 | by lord_cwSee all my reviews

Love: the way they build the story telling. It start very much in the deep, with a nice horror story opening and nice build up where it take extreme. Like how it changed and sometimes some surprising reaction. Top point a real life syndrome, behind the scene.

Negative: Pity they went too fast into some fase and too slow in some moments. They do not follow up on some lead and also went too quickly off. The story is just too easy, could be more complex, in depth and the end is just too easy. Would like to see more action especially.
