Audiences who enjoy unsettling psychological thrillers will be at the edge of their seats throughout this well-crafted, sinister and suspenseful Aussie flick which boasts a prominent cast of fine actors.
When Lizzie sees a young girl at a birthday party she believes it’s her daughter who presumably perished in a hospital fire many years earlier. Unable to move on and seemingly unbalanced, her obsessive fantasy is fuelled further when she stops taking her medication.
Swedish actress Noomi Rapace (Millennium Trilogy) is frightening in the pivotal role as the mother who is all alone and regarded as a mentally deranged woman on the decline. Yvonne Strahovski (The Handmaid’s Tale), Luke Evans (Beauty And The Beast) and Richard Roxburgh (Rake) also have major roles in this riveting film which is inspired by true events.
Is this beautiful, petite and softly spoken woman who celebrates her dead daughter’ s birthday simply grief-stricken and ‘living with a ghost’ or is a mother’s strong intuition at work?
Nothing will prepare audiences for the unpredictable yet satisfying twist in the climactic conclusion. (MMo)
