It's been some time since a twisty thriller was able to genuinely surprise an audience. Increased viewer awareness of the various twist tropes often forces filmmakers to heap twist upon twist upon twist, straining credulity all the way. Invariably, the twist is about the twist is about the twist.

There’s perilously little playfulness to be found either in the script or its otherwise handsomely ashen cinematic treatment.

A handsome thriller, absorbing for its duration and with a couple of neat rug-pulls.

Perfectly effective, but while director Rowan Joffe keeps the twists coming, something about Kidman’s blank, frosty performance is unconvincing.

Doesn’t transmute the material into something richer and deeper the way.

Strong performances keep the viewer guessing as much as our heroine, but the character drama recedes as the thriller element builds, to its detriment.
