Kill Me Three Times (2015)

The Riot Club (Posh) (2015)
Wendy and Lucy (2008)
" Reichardt does her best to make the grim story feel organic, bringing a muted, hypnotic stillness echoed by her marquee star. But given our nation's woes, it's likely viewers will cut Wendy and Lucy the teensiest bit of slack that it needs. "
