This alarming film affected me too much to write about it straight away, and in the same vein I wanted to digest it internally afterwards and couldn’t face staying for the Q&A with Terry Gilliam. My considered verdict: thought provoking and haunting and worth seeing, although I doubt I’ll watch it again. The lead performance from 11 year old Jodelle Ferland as Jeliza-Rose was stunning, and the cinematography excellent. A film that will make an impression.
