Let me just say that the less you know about this movie, the better it gets. It’s an engaging psychological thriller that’s buoyed by a superb performance from Elizabeth Olsen. With its seamless transitions from past to present, it grips you by the throat and messes up your brain. That bummer of an ending perfectly capped the movie. What a nice surprise!

Rating: ★★★★☆
