Yeah this thoroughly owns! An unbelievable debut picture, directed with such poise that you’d think Lauren Hadaway has been making movies her whole life. The images crackle with electricity (sometimes literally lol) and the kinetic energy on hand is a sight to behold. There’s one gnarly, content warning-worthy scene that was extremely difficult to watch, and needs to be reworked in the next edits imo— but apart from that, it whips so hard that I can’t help but love! Isabelle Fuhrman is incredible, a raw nerve dancing on knife’s edge. When Film Twitter finds out about this it’ll go nuts!
