    Alone with You

    ★★★½

    Like I wasn't going to watch a new film with Barbara Crampton the first night it hit Shudder? Granted, her role is a supporting one, but that's fine. Emily Bennett delivers an outstanding performance as our lead though, & proves overall to be a talent to keep an eye on. I appreciated that the story reveals itself on its own time, though there's a bit of wheel spinning in the middle stretch. And while I figured out where it was headed…

    Ultrasound caught my eye on Hulu, & I'm glad it did. The story requires a fair amount of patience, but kept me hooked in well enough that I stuck with it. I liked the cast & the tale took some dark & unexpected turns. The ending wasn't completely satisfying, however, I think because the secondary plot threads wound up feeling a little unnecessary or at least underdeveloped. I mostly got how it all tied together, but it didn't feel complete. Still, it was different enough that it was worth my time.

    ★★★★

    Love the look of this one & the music choices throughout made me want the soundtrack. Lots more going on than it initially seems, as the whole film digs into exploring relationship dynamics. The ending was wonderfully weird, & I think I'll have to watch it again to see what else I get out of it. Excellent choice for a late night movie.

    I wound up loving this film thanks to the well realized characters, the sex positive viewpoints, & the ways it embraces body positivity especially with regard to Emma Thompson. I'm glad she took on this role, as it winds up being another reminder of her talents while proving you can cast women her age in this type of film. The film is a treat all around, & I'm glad the positive feedback I saw online led me to it.
