Our take

The nocturnal streets of New York splinter into psychological puzzle pieces in Adam Leon’s intriguing drama, starring Vanessa Kirby as a writer struck by a mysterious case of amnesia. Under the hypnotic sway of Nicholas Britell’s synth-heavy score, the imagined and the real dangerously coalesce.
