Horse Girl

Two-time Golden Globe nominee Alison Brie co-writes and stars in this psychological thriller about a woman whose surreal dreams begin to mess with her day-to-day life. Helmed by Jeff Baena (The Little Hours).

"Sarah (Brie) has a quiet and fairly simple life, contenting herself with the crafts-store job she holds, the nightly supernatural crime TV show she adores, and the equestrian centre she visits constantly. When a gift impulsively stirs her curiosity about her family history, unexpected and strange dreams begin to disturb her. As these visions seep into her waking moments, Sarah struggles to hold on to her fragile reality." (Sundance Film Festival)

Delves into a troubled mind only to get lost among its oddities, forgetting the sensitivity that drew it there in the first place.

An empathetic depiction of mental illness, but the film fails to clear the hurdle it sets itself.

A shaky dramatic enterprise. Nevertheless, this story of Sarah (a distinguished performance by Alison Brie) -- a seemingly normal young woman at the mercy of frightful delusions -- quickly proves seductive.

The sincerity that Brie brings to her full-fledged embodiment of mental illness is major, and in turn helps Horse Girl overcome its tricky storytelling.

There are indications that "Horse Girl" and its creators have something to say about the sorry state of mental health care in this country... but it's never explored beyond basics.

A rare and piercingly compassionate exploration of the sorts of madness that come from intense loneliness, and the intense loneliness that comes from being regarded as mad.
