    Harrowing and touching, with stellar performances by Skarsgard and Headley, and a fine supporting turn from Ian Hart.

  1. In the end, grips us precisely because its actors are so utterly absorbed in their roles, so unfettered and nakedly expressive. This is the kind of acting we always look for, but rarely see.
  2. The characters, irritating as they can be at first, grow on you as they grow up.
  3. Behind the narrative twists and contrived dramatic complications is a searing and scary look at dysfunction.
