I absolutely loved this film. It’s the best thriller I’ve seen in a long time. The pace isn’t fast but enough happens to keep you gripped throughout. I think the pace is just right for how the film plays on emotion because that’s what it does. It focuses on the family and how the father deals with the loss of his daughter and feeling powerless to save her. I thought the film was beautiful and what made it better was the fact that the whole cast could act. They made it feel real. I loved the ending because it wasn’t completely closed but you still got the sense that everything was going to be okay. I thought it was a fantastic film!
