    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I can't even give this movie a star, if you liked this movie you are a monster.


    The most awful thing about this movie is it doesn't get how creepy the whole premise is. Jim is an awful abusive person and Aurora has to put up with it for the rest of her life.


    One other character comes along to offer a fair perspective in this and basically paints what Jim did as desperation, and seemingly insinuates that Aurora should just suck it up.


    Creepy, would not recommend.

    Not exactly what I was expecting, although given the director and his previous movies (anyone else seen Valhalla Rising?) I guess I should've known better. Beautifully shot, some great actors (although Christine Hendricks just seemed out of place to me) and a really compelling story.
