What makes a person kill another person? Attempting to answer that unanswerable question is a sport for filmmakers, as they impose pop-psychological motives on the sick-minded murderers at the centre of their stories. With his directorial debut, Australian actor Ben Young chooses to tell that all-too-common tale from a different perspective, namely that of a killer’s complicit girlfriend. The results are murkier and more profound and more moving than expected.
