So this is a film about perceptions and assumptions because I learned in the last 20 minutes of the film that I had made several assumptions and had based my understanding of the story line on those assumptions. Wow. Was I ever shown a thing or two by the clever writing and understated acting. Also, I was fooled by the seeming innocence of the young girls' familiarities and pleasantries, when the subject matter was actually quite horrifying. So congratulations to the cast and the writers because this was an unexpected and pleasant little surprise of a film. Can't say much about it without spoiling it for others who haven't seen it, but I suggest you watch it and that you keep an open mind. The ultra-calm tone of the film made it all the more ominous. I enjoyed the acting, and didn't find it too amateurish or off putting. I felt the loneliness and isolation of the characters through their acting even though they weren't obvious about it.
