Looks really good and good early buzz.

RT = 96% (no consensus yet. 26 reviews)

The girl, Kiera Allen, is first wheel chair bound actor to be featured since like 1947 or something. Amazing story actually, but this is fictional.

Pretty disappointed. I clicked on the thread thinking this was a movie starring Woody Allen.

Surprised this doesn't have more activity, thought this was very good. Guess I'll wait till more folks see it before getting into it.

I wasn’t too in to it at first, but it got better once the twist comes in to play.

Acting was good.

This was a solid thriller and deserves more attention than it's getting. Solid lead performances and edge of your seat tension throughout almost the entire runtime. It's nothing groundbreaking, but it's more than worth a watch for thriller fans.

Apparently this is the most watched "opening weekend" movie premiere in Hulu's history, handily beating Palm Springs. Also their most popular movie ever in social media engagement.

I liked it quite a bit, but it's not as terrific or clever as Searching. It's also more than a little reminiscent of Misery. Still, it's suspenseful and compelling enough to make for a good watch.

Just finished this. Good and tense with lots of little races throughout, I liked it. Here's a twist, there's a twist, and the very, very ending, wow, I did not see that coming! Got a good chuckle out the classic violin plucking score at the climax of the road scene. Cliche, but effective. Appreciated the cinematography, it really worked.

Watched this again this afternoon with our oldest and my spouse, we all dug it. Nice and tense!

This is a solid thriller with a star-making performance by Kiera Allen. Loved the line-cutting bit at the drugstore and how she was taken very seriously
Spoiler:
by the postman
It goes a bit overboard in the climax, but that's relatively easy to forgive since there's so much great stuff leading up to it, and the final couple of seconds put a perfect button on things. I have to go back to watch Searching and am really looking forward to Aneesh Chaganty's next movie.
