Review

Our Score
Those familiar with Gone Girl will experience an inescapable sense of déjà vu while watching Fouad Mikati's derivative thriller, which sees nurse Rosamund Pike methodically plotting revenge on the man who raped her. Although nowhere near her Oscar-nominated form in David Fincher's film, Pike does hold the picture together with enigmatic steeliness, as she hides from her protective father (Nick Nolte) the fact that she is visiting her assailant (Shiloh Fernandez) in prison. She does so with a view to luring him back to the scene of the crime to work as a handyman on the home she can no longer sell because of the grim association. The camera prowls menacingly through the interiors, but the writers seem too content with their improbable conceit to bother with back story or character arcs. Moreover, Mikati struggles to animate a supporting cast that (somewhat aptly, given Pike's role as Lady Penelope in the revived version of Thunderbirds) appears to have attended the "supermarionation" school of acting.

Summary

A small-town nurse goes on a blind date with a stranger who rapes her. As she struggles to rebuild her life, she takes to regularly visiting her attacker in prison. However, when he is released, he discovers she has been planning her revenge. Thriller, starring Rosamund Pike, Shiloh Fernandez and Nick Nolte.
