Movie Info

Cathy's overwhelming fear that her husband's having an affair and her teenage daughter is becoming estranged leads her to retreat to her sister's home where she cat-sits, compulsively cleans, and spies on a neighbouring family - Mom, Dad, and Teenage Son. When Cathy becomes the object of the teenage son's obsession, he threatens to unravel everything from her precarious marriage to her daughter's innocence, and to her own wavering sanity.

  • A film that feels like it's going through the motions as much as its put-upon protagonist.

  • Admirably acted and powered by a loopy internal rhythm, the film nonetheless wears out its welcome long before it's done inflicting indignities on its heroine, arriving at its main point early and then repeating it again and again.

  • When it clicks, the film is a provocative combo of emotional fumbling, droll asides and shrewd insights.

  • There's comedy in the awkward situations this creates. It's way more awkward than Curb Your Enthusiasm awkward comedy because every character is an agent of awkwardness, and each one has conviction.

  • With a career-best performance by Wendi McLendon-Covey, Debra Eisenstadt's Imaginary Order is a classic indie in every sense of the word.

    Feb 7, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Sometimes it really works; sometimes it doesn't. Either way, it's a fantastic vehicle for Wendi McLendon-Covey, who's something of a revelation here.
