Why aren't people raving their asses off about this little lovely film? It acomplishes so much without making any fuss. It is just compelling as fuck and I felt ecstatic watching it. That Aunt Miranda scene at the kitchen just nailed it.
This movie feels so rushed. Cyd instantly falls in love with Katie, despite their only interaction being eye contact. Cyd cheats on Katie, then 2 minutes later, she's crying that Katie has been assaulted. The characters interact like Aliens, I'm confused about the writing and the direction given to the actors.
