    Zoey Deutch is amazing as usual as she frequently excels in such unlikeable protagonist roles.

    Was just looking for a not too heavy film for a watch and thought this might provide some enjoyment with an interesting premise.

    The first shot already totally got me into the film. Genuine, mundane, calming, and beautiful. What followed was a series of similar still, long takes that interweave daily scenes of Kang and Non, never revealing more than it has to show us what is happening at the…
