Harrowing Heroism

I had to remind myself to breathe during certain scenes of this suspenseful and harrowing movie. Brilliant casting serves up cringing tension between an understated and wholly believable heroine and her iconic-evil tormentors. The New Yorker nailed it: "Compelling. Wire-tight suspense. May sound like a history lesson, but don't be fooled. It's a horror film."
