Movie Info

Laura (Evan Rachel Wood) works as a house cleaner for her father's company but her personal life is not so pristine. Rough around the edges, looking for love in all the wrong places, her heartbreaking behavior points to hardships of the past. One day on the job, in yet another house, Laura meets Eva (Julia Sarah Stone), a quiet teenager unhappy with her disciplined life. In Eva, Laura rediscovers an innocent tenderness. In Laura, Eva finds a thrilling rebel who can bring her into unknown territories. The mutual attraction soon morphs into obsession as Laura convinces Eva to run away and secretly come live with her, perilously raising the stakes for the young, impressionable girl as Laura's emotional instability becomes increasingly clear. As their world closes in, they must unearth certain truths to find a way out.

Critic Reviews for Allure

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (3)

The screenplay doesn't rise to the level of the behind-the-camera craftmanship or the acting.

The utterly humorless script of Allure often makes for uneasy viewing.

March 16, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The filmmakers seem less concerned with telling a story than in convincing the audience (and maybe themselves) that they can handle this provocative and potentially exploitive material ... with what's conventionally considered "appropriate" sensitivity.

I suppose there are worse things for a film to be than an educational conversation starter. However, Allure is a difficult, and ultimately, an unsatisfying watch as a film.

This is an exquisite portrait of human suffering. Particularly for first-time writer/directors the film is a marvel, a brilliant objet d'art that is incredibly unpleasant to watch.

March 16, 2018 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Bad love comes in several varieties in this thriller about a woman whose relationship with a teenager has dire consequences.
