A love story in which the haunting complexities of sexuality and gender are treated with cinematic urgency.

Somehow, it just doesn't gel into a coherent, cohesive and compelling ghost story.

Plenty to keep your interest is happening, yet it falls short of working. Maybe it is because there is no real link made between any parts of the story. The parts do not make a whole. Or cogent story.

The always-reliable Gadon brings life to her character; whether in male or female guise, she's got emotional believability and heft.

t's disorienting, and I don't know that it works as well as it wants to, but it's not unpleasant.
