I saw this at Tribeca earlier this year and it was one of the stronger films in competition. It won best narrative and actress.

I knew the lead name sounded familiar, creepy girl from Orphan. And it seems they did an Orphan prequel that never got released.

Bump now that Dex mentioned this and the new Orphan is out.

This is a great little film, Isabelle is excellent in this drama/thriller.

I guess I'll have to wait and see if it ever migrates to another service. Anything other than Yellowjackets is there another movie on Showtime to check out? I'd like to check this out but I don't want to burn a trial just yet.

They still have a big collection of A24 films.

The newest releases are stuff like The Contractor and Infinite Storm.

City on the Hill is a show worth watching.

Giving this underseen film a little shout-out since it has now been added to Netflix.
