Conclusion: 3/5
Amazing performances by Abbie Cornish and also Sam Worthington. Since this film the actors have had major success. She has been in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) and he has been in Avatar (2009). The photography in this is very stunning. I did like the atmospheric electronic soundtrack which was done by Decoder Ring. In total this film took seven years to make.
