Child sexual abuse theme, strong sex

Acclaimed actress Elizabeth Berry (Natalie Portman, Black Swan) arrives in Georgia to the household of the subject she is about to portray in her next film: the notorious Gracie Atherton-Yoo (Julianne Moore, Still Alice), who, at 36 years old, made headlines after an affair with 7th grader Joe – her son Georgie’s childhood best friend.

Still together some 20 years later, with their twins on the eve of graduating school, their disquieting relationship is put under the microscope by the investigative Elizabeth.

Her presence begins to unravel the uneasily serene household, as she casts the net wide to interview friends and family, and long-unspoken truths bubble disruptively to the surface.

A queasy ménage à trois between the extraordinary acting talents of Portman, Moore, and revelatory newcomer Charles Melton, Todd Haynes’ riveting, psychologically probing melodrama is a filmmaking masterclass which ranks amongst the year’s very best.
