A long time ago, teenage Una ran away with an older man, Ray, a crime for which he was imprisoned. When she comes across a photo of him in a trade magazine, Una tracks him down to his workplace, and her abrupt arrival threatens to destroy Ray’s new life, while derailing her precarious stability.

MUBI's take

Based on David Harrower’s Tony-winning play Blackbird, this taut, simmering debut from Benedict Andrews (Seberg) delves into the reverberations of trauma as a young woman finally confronts her abuser. Played to ice-cold perfection by Rooney Mara, it also stars the superb Ben Mendelsohn & Riz Ahmed.
