Movie Info

A woman named Abigail lives at the edge of the city, where no one can see her; she keeps her eyes turned away, but secretly she watches, listens, and hopes. Her father is dying, but she can't face him. She dreams of seeing him well again. She remembers a story about a woodcutter who saves the life of a deer and is granted a wish. He wishes for a companion. One evening an unknown man appears in her apartment, and she hides him. He tells her of a strange creature: it comes to earth, removes its robe, and bathes in the water. If you hide its robe, it follows you home; if you care for it, it loves you; and as long as you keep its robe, it will never leave you. Abigail finds this creature, and suddenly her life in the city is changed. But she finds it difficult to believe that she could have such a companion, one who will never leave her. (c) Official Site

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (4)

The tone teeters between delicate and affected, and there's only so much flitting around and soulful stares a movie can sustain before an audience starts wanting something more earthbound.

"Abigail Harm" tracks the lonely lulls and strange eruptions in one desperately uninteresting life.

Plummer's highly emotive performance ... exudes more emotion in a wistful sideways glance than most actresses do over their entire careers.

The gorgeous cinematography and generosity to Plummer's emotive gifts almost make up for the mumbo-jumboness of it all. Almost.

Top Critic

Lee Isaac Chung's film exudes a wonderful sense of originality, a daring and organic playfulness rarely found in American indie cinema.

Slant Magazine

Sluggish and pretentious fantasy about a lonely woman and the otherworldly visitor who enters her life.
