The Woman

Causing quite the controversy at Sundance, this 2011 horror follows a well-off country lawyer who happens upon an animalistic woman raised in a violent clan. Managing to capture her, he takes the woman to his family home where they attempt to make her "civil" as part of their secret pet project.

There are plenty of guts, but The Woman doesn't have enough to make its feminist rhetoric stick.

The mix of blunt sexual politics and dime-store-paperback luridness has the bracing quality of tub-brewed rotgut. It eats away at the stomach lining - that is, if it can be stomached at all.

The Woman is not, obviously, a family movie, but it is, like much of the best drama, about a family - here, how an outsider upends its unhinged equilibrium. True to its genre, there is gore and sudden shrieks.
