Synopsis:
While troubling to use subtle and pedophilia in the same sentence, there’s no better way to describe this matter-of-fact story of a man who keeps a young boy locked in his basement. The horrors of unseen sexual abuse merge with the banal cues of modern domestic life as this understated film carefully plots its twists and turns. The film forgoes explicit visuals in exchange for an ending that you won’t forget.
