What’s in the Darkness ★★★

This is one of those Chinese rural life movies where you can't be sure if it's done with good actors acting like it's done with real villagers or if it's done with real villagers trying to act. A young girl's coming of age/sexual awakening against a backdrop of grisly rape murders. The girl approaches both with a fearless inquisitiveness. Hmm. Generational differences and changing morals are also explored. "Don't sit on the back of a bike with your legs open. It's not a good look."
