Unintentional prequel to " Nanny Cam," Long, drawn out drama
India Eisley has been known mainly for playing psycho nymphs in horror films and in some dramas, usually with the end result not so satisfying to her characters.
Although directed by a woman, it's not reflective of the #MeToo movement. I feel there's too much time given to showing the mean as strong and overcoming their weaknesses yet leaving the women to struggle with theirs.
Released too late after I Am the Night, which would have saved this film. Adam comes off as a modern Scott Pilgrim and acts alot like Micheal Cera. I'm uncertain if all of the events happen in one weekend; I feel there was a lot cut.
Very thin story. India fans will notice her typical fare in this one - chap-lipped, anorexic sickly pale gloomy and awkward girl with the occasinal nip slips but in an artsy fashion, playing a teen girl despite being an adult herself.
The message is OK because it feels unfinished. I feel you can honestly finish India's character, Alice's story by watching her Lifetime film, "Nanny Cam."
I'm sorry I waited a year for this to be released and only to VOD/streaming for that matter.
Three stars because it tried to deliver a somewhat positive message while also leaving a somber one.
A couple F-bombs, a few very small sex scenes, and few nip-slips, in artsy fashion.
