Starring Elisabeth Moss
Cecilia runs from a domestic abuse relationship, only to learn that her abusive husband has taken his own life. But has he? Soon Cecilia starts to wonder when she realizes she is being hunted by someone no one can see.
I had already seen this movie once in the theater when I went out for a girl’s night with my daughter and my best friend. I am a fan of Elisabeth Moss due to Handmaid’s Tale and was looking forward to seeing this movie. Plus, the preview made it look amazing. So, this was the movie chosen for girl’s night.
I decided to rent it because I had been wanting to watch it again. Since I’m watching it, I thought it would be fun to add it to the list.
The movie starts out with Cecilia sneaking around her house. It is obvious that she drugged her husband to make him sleep deeper to give her the chance to get away. You can tell that she is scared of him because every small sound she makes, she keeps looking to see if he is waking up.
There is a level of suspense as she is sneaking around. I find myself saying “Go girl, go” while watching it. It really makes it look like he is going to grab her any second.
Of course, her ride doesn’t show up when she is supposed to making for the husband showing up right as she gets in the car to leave. This is her sister and she couldn’t be on time for something like that? Shame.
Then, it switches to two weeks later and she is afraid to leave her friend’s house. So, they have made a deal of her just walking to the mailbox which she is terrified to do. She is convinced that her husband could be out there.
Then she learns that husband is dead of apparent suicide. After that, Cecilia opens up about some of the stuff that the husband did while they were together.
Little things start happening after she meets with the lawyer to discuss the money the husband left her. Things like the stove getting turned up and the pan catching on fire, a dress falling off the hanger, she feels like someone is watching her.
I would really have flipped out over the front door being closed, but then when she looked back it’s open or the covers getting pulled off of her and ending up on the other side of the room.
The sister is a complete piece of work. She is so quick to dismiss anything that Cecilia says when she is trying to explain what is going on. The way everything in her life is getting eliminated is so devious. It really makes it look like Cecilia is losing her mind to the people around her.
Even though there is a lot of suspense in this movie, it doesn’t waiver. It seems like there is always something going on which I like.
The action really picks up the farther you get into the movie. The hospital scenes are awesome.
The ending of this movie is fabulous. I would definitely give this movie an A and recommend you watch it if you haven’t seen it already.
