This is a horror film... but it's also a heartbreaking meditation on watching someone you love slip away, until they aren't who they were anymore.

July 27, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

A disturbing and ultimately devastating movie about what it means to love someone unconditionally, even when they've lost the power to love you back.

I particularly like it as a parable about dementia... It falls apart a little bit in the final act, but there's this creepy, eerie stylishness about it and a mounting sense of dread that I appreciated.

It starts well, but then they paint themselves into a corner and don't know how to resolve the mystery.

July 21, 2020 | Full Review…

A sinister slow-blooming portrait of domestic horror.

July 16, 2020 | Rating: B | Full Review…

It's a hell of a performance by Robyn Nevin, who's had a long and commanding career on the Australian stage.
