After escaping from a cult, a young woman takes shelter at her sister’s remote cabin but has difficulty distinguishing reality from memory and hallucination. This arresting thriller, which has been likened to the work of Polanski and Haneke, is the feature debut from Sean Durkin, the young filmmaker who gained notice as one of the producers of Antonio Campos’ acclaimed Afterschool (2008).
