†. Kennedy Pope's rating of the film The Blackcoat's Daughter

I think the biggest potential strength of The Blackcoat's Daughter turned out to be its biggest weakness. The whole film plays out as essentially two isolated incidents, which I like; but it was so adamant on providing such little context that it lacked the character development necessary for me to stay engaged. It ultimately results in a paper thin film. What I can commend is the spot-on tone and score.
