| Bleak yet hopeful
This movie has plenty of darkness and sadness, but luckily it's punctuated with an element of hope as well, because otherwise I think it would just be too sad to watch. It's a story of a woman in a mental hospital and what brought her there. She's now very old with an addled mind, so the story cuts between past and present to unveil the circumstances of the story. Rooney Mara turns in a strong performance as the younger version of the main character and Theo James - who is normally the hero type - is a creepy priest. Nice to see him in a departure from the norm.
