Storyline

On the wings of a bad break-up, Alice arrives unannounced at her estranged brother Ethan's house in an attempt to reconcile. While avoiding entirely their family's stormy past - she begins to question how he has managed to mysteriously inherit and keep his grand home. Whether related to the stress permeating the thick air of the home or simply a random occurrence, she also begins to have bizarrely haunting dreams that find her somersaulting out of bed in the night. For his part, Ethan is seemingly preoccupied with drawing parallel lines, and fixating longingly on a painting of a circle of stones on the beach. He loses himself in these habits, so much so that he begins to lose his favorite pen and, possibly, his mind. While wavering on the precipice of sanity, the appearance of a random sinkhole in the backyard becomes a new cause for obsession, for both of them, as well. The arrival of Ethan's girlfriend Misty detracts attention away from this natural phenomenon and onto the sibling's... Written by lament

Quotes

Alice: Are you in love, Misty?
Misty: [lying casually in a pool] Yes.
Alice: Both of you?
Misty: [smirks] Well, I would assume.
Alice: That's funny.
Misty: Why is that?
Alice: I guess I didn't get that vibe from him.
Misty: Why? What'd he say...
Alice: Nothing. Just that you were casual. He didn't exactly use the word "love" but, he was probably just nervous to tell me. Love is a big word.
Misty: [looks up at Alice] Do you think I'm a child, Alice?

Captivating
20 March 2018 | by JithindurdenSee all my reviews

Abbey Lee is terrific and easily owns the whole film. At times it almost feels like a prequel to The Neon Demon because of her character even though this is not even close to being as violent or lit in neon lights. But this film is also an atmospheric psychological mystery thriller that often goes surreal along with hints of fantastical elements.

Alice comes to live with her brother in his mansion where he is trying to write his book and mysterious incidents start to happen and then Ethan's girlfriend comes to live with them.

The film manages to keep you on the edge of your seats even with its slow pace with its disturbing vibe making the viewers unsure of what to expect. Despite the fact that it never literally acknowledges it, the incestuous undertone (more like overtone) stays right in the centre of the narrative.

Who is the stranger? Who could be trusted? Whoever and whatever it is is it safe to welcome? The mystery is open to interpretation and they've given enough clues but enough space also for the viewers to reach their own conclusion or the lack of it.
