Sarah Gadon's exhilarating performance inhabits and subverts all the extreme adjectives thrown Grace's way, leaving you with a memorable character whose lingering unknowability is her greatest strength.

The story comes to the viewer in complex chunks and unsettling layers... Innocent or guilty? There's much more to it than that.
