Though its pile-up of poverty, humiliation and bitterness threatens to make it a miserablist moral crusade, the film finds forward momentum in its protagonist, who is not yet ready to be destroyed by what the world has saddled her with.
Every part of this film that goes to an unsettling place or each opposing moment that shows glimmers of hope within disparity hinge on the light shining out of Auden Thornton's extraordinary performance.
The film has a compassion for its subjects and shines a light on the small things that are so often left out of these kinds of stories.
A timely story for the #MeToo era
Beauty Mark is tonally odd at times, and not all the scenes make coherent sense. But its story and message are remarkable, the actors are excellent, and the realistic depiction of adult survivors of sexual abuse is heartfelt.
If Beauty Mark is able to do anything at all for viewers, it should be that the film gets people to start talking and have that conversation.
Thornton's extraordinary performance conjures such powerful emotional horror and desperation, that audiences have little choice but to be carried along with her into the dramatic vortex of her unrelenting plight.
Angie is a fierce, focused protagonist; the film serves as a reminder of how much strength it can take simply to keep going, and of the invisible triumphs of people all around us whose stories we would never guess at.
