A romantic thriller by Ben Wheatley, the film offers everything it promises. Based on the 1938 novel of the same name, the plot is intriguing with enough suspense and mystery to have you invested and interested till the end.
The lead actors do a nuanced job of keeping you guessing while moving the plot along. The twist, when it appears, isn’t entirely a surprise but plausible.
Good performances in a different yet understandable story.
