Viewing Notes

I love that this unsettling and disturbing film takes its time to let the story develop all on its own, giving the primary characters room to breathe and settle in. The cinematography and score are both excellent and work well together to synthesize an undercurrent of unease from start to finish. All the kids are excellent and effective in their roles.
