Movie Info

A thirty-year-old woman, troubled by her past and struggling with a dysfunctional relationship with her father, seeks sexual and emotional fulfillment through a series of failed relationships. However, her life changes when she befriends and convinces an unhappy sixteen-year-old girl to run away to her house, under the guise of a confidante who wants to help. Although the arrangement initially works, it soon becomes clear that for the young girl to stay and continue satisfying her needs, the older woman will have to employ immoral tactics. Manipulation, denial and co-dependency fuel what ultimately becomes a fractured dynamic that can only sustain itself for so long.

  • Tightly written and sensitively rendered, the devastating film is propelled by masterful performances, led by a bewitching Wood in the role she was born to play.

  • It's subtle and absorbing, visualized with a sophisticated gloom that stays with you.

  • A Worthy Companion gives a pulpy lesbian-obsession thriller premise the full arthouse treatment. Warning: You may miss the pulp.

  • The drama is memorable but often feels grimly unpleasant rather than moving.

  • The cast can't elevate this thinly sketched and ultimately insulting material.

  • [Jason] Sanchez's script telegraphs every plot development and makes a crucial error in perspective by focusing on [Evan Rachel] Wood's Laura instead of [Julia Sarah] Stone's Eva.
