USA | 2008 | 97 min | DIR: Jennifer Lynch | MA 15+
Two FBI agents attempt to clarify the murders occurring in a desolate region. They approach the witnesses of the latest incident with the help of the local police. All of them hide something and all have wildly different stories to tell.
“In this long-time-coming sophomore film, Lynch exercises powers of her own. She gets repellant, seductive, sympathetic performances from her actors. Ormond and Pullman are frightfully good at teasing intimacy.”-Denver Post
“Beneath the film’s surface appeal as a twisty, morbidly funny freak-out lies a weightier theme on the resilience of children.”-Village Voice
“Some will be unable to appreciate the movie’s savagery on any level. Others will find it affecting and uncompromising, the kind of movie that plunges you into a nightmare and ratchets up the intensity until you’re grateful for a moment’s respite.”-San Fransisco Examiner
Jennifer Lynch will introduce the film on 9 March.
