Takes you through the painfully familiar rollercoaster of tweenage emotions with a lot of unflinching observations and impressively controlled performances. Josh Hamilton as awkward dad 👌
McQueen’s best choice was to play it completely cool, subverting the often white, hyper-masculine heist movie as covertly as his heroines plan the job.
This one is chock full of goodies from its choice and very game cast to its rigorously crafted story, which deepens thematically with each twist. McQueen struggles to maintain tension in the action sequences, but the script is so loaded with surprises that it all works...at times beautifully so.
Ferociously imaginative, out-there on a level just below surreality, and much more slow-burningly sinister than I was prepared for.
This is surprisingly uncompromising stuff, reaching deep into the conventions of the horror genre and pulling out something ugly, odd and unquestionably original.

Mandy cements him as one of the most exciting minds we have in the cinema.
