Brilliantly executed
26 October 2020 | by stacey-wegerSee all my reviews

Caught this at a film fest. Aubrey Plaza is just a gift that keeps giving. Swinging from sultry and manipulative to emotionally obliterated, she embodies the character of Allison. It's usually pretty hard to not see "Aubrey Plaza" when you see her in a film but in this role she truly fades into character. Beautifully filmed, it not only keeps you riveted but is also utterly uncomfortable and at times, raw. Is she the writer, the star, or the director? Is she the temptress or the jilted lover? Is she none of these things? It will keep you guessing and thinking well after the credits role. Well done!
