Caitlin's rating of the film Eva Nová

A stark and searing drama about an ageing actress trying to repent for her past sins. Emilia Vasaryova's performance is astounding and she carries the picture. With subtle shifts in her face, she conveys pathos, regret, manipulation, and sorrow in a film that gives us a multi-dimensional and flawed female character. Also exposes sexism, ageism, and misogyny in the film industry.
