What are people saying?

  • ig_____or's rating of the film Una

    "Una" is a very decent movie, but given the caliber of the two leading actors and the topic of discussion I was expecting something stronger. The company/warehouse where most of the present-day action takes place was a cool location for the confrontation between the two characters. The film ends on a somber tone which I enjoyed, but overall... a lukewarm result.

  • Artemis's rating of the film Una

    A fantastically disquieting and uncomfortable story that is slightly undercut by overly ambitious directing.

  • NICOLE86's rating of the film Una

    The film makes it seem like its two lovers that got away from each other, it's nowhere near the intensity of the David Harrower play its based on. Also, the play really shows the mental damage that Una has from the abuse. two amazing actors were wasted on this movie.

  • Jason's rating of the film Una

    Featuring two powerhouse performers -- indeed two of the very finest in the known universe -- and having its origins in a play (feeding off obviously incendiary subject matter), we could of course be excused for expecting fireworks. Well, we decidedly fail to get said pyrotechnics. Fine actors (can't be emphasized sufficiently) and smart / sophisticated approach to shooting and cutting are propped up on quicksand.

  • smndvdcl's rating of the film Una

    A deeply unsettling social realism drama that echoes films like 'Boy A'. The kind of film that leaves you haunted weeks after. The dark heart of human nature left raw for inspection. The worst part is having to conclude that child abusers still have facets of humanity beyond the menace - this is what discomfits far more than simply alienating yourself from their villainies.

  • OFF_FRAME's rating of the film Una

    An often tense and thought provoking reconciliation piece between a man and the now adult woman who he had an illicit relationship with when she was a 13-year old child. It's a great discussion piece and refreshingly original in it's story angle. Mendelsohn and Mara have a strong, believable connection. 3.5 stars

  • Hugo Bonjour's rating of the film Una

    I watched this because of "Blackbird" which I love. It's an ok adaptation, but not a great one. I missed some of the feelings that the play evokes so well. Had I not read it I'd have enjoyed this more, maybe. I understand they tried to change things up a bit, which I didn't mind (with the flashbacks, background from both Una and Ray, and Una going to his house in the end) but I was left expecting more from this.

  • Mr.Rager's rating of the film Una

    Pairing Mara and Mandelsohn seems for me something pretty spectacular, both being capable to achieve great performances even in small projects. Both of them had balls to accept this parts because this film tackles a sensitive problem. The drama was real, the acting was credible and i liked how the story was developed and how it ended. 7/10
