A brilliant ensemble cast tests the limits of love, malice and madness in this gripping psychological thriller about getting even with a vengeance! Emotionally scarred by years of her tyrannical father’s mental cruelty and her ineffectual mother’s weakness, Lily seems destined to relive old patterns of abuse when she falls passionately in love with Tim, a seductive schemer who misses no opportunity to humiliate her. Even her best friend Kilo is powerless to help Lily see Tim for the scumbag he is. But one night, when her boyfriend’s brutality goes too far, Lily’s brittle facade of “love” is shattered, and she vows to exact the ultimate revenge against the two men who have made her life a living hell.

RIP Jean-Marc Vallée (1963-2021).
I guess The L-word crew understood well they had a catch recruiting Laurel if they saw this film. I guess they would have.
No, I take that half-back. I’m sure it was because of the wondertful The Incredible True Adventure of 2 Girls in Love. But she is good in this film too.
