      Elena Lazic Sight & Sound This elegant and hypnotic film dares to go to some very secret places. Oct 16, 2019 Full Review Guy Lodge Variety Intelligently sensational adult fare, crafted with paper-cut precision on all fronts... Aug 17, 2019 Full Review Boyd van Hoeij Hollywood Reporter It's an ambitious and auspicious debut, even though not all of its frayed edges seem to be intentional. Aug 13, 2019 Full Review Matt Cipolla The Spool I can't say I want to see it again, but I really need to. More importantly, I really hope rapists end up seeing it. Just maybe they'll realize what they've done. Jan 17, 2020 Full Review Mina Takla AwardsWatch Carice van Houten delivers a stunning performance that's one of the year's best. Jan 16, 2020 Full Review Alan Ng Film Threat In a #MeToo climate, it chooses to stand by its controversial story rather than play is safe. This is not a film that lazily says, "men bad/women good," which is easy to do in fiction. Rated: 8/10 Jan 8, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 11/15/23 Full Review Audience Member Caught this @ Chicago International Film Festival. Decent storyline, good pacing; but for me, the overall praise goes to the impeccable lead performances. The chemistry blazes throughout their shared screen time; stellar work from both.
