Synopsis
Shaken by her father's death and a difficult breakup, Catherine retreats to the lakeside cabin of her friend Virginia in an attempt to heal. But their once-strong friendship begins to strain, with the constant presence of boy-next-door Rich further amplifying the simmering tension between the women.

Writer/director Alex Ross Perry takes a cue from Robert Altman's 3 Women and Ingmar Bergman's Persona to create a psychological drama that verges toward horror, ably helped out by Sean Price Williams' often-claustrophobic cinematography. Mad Men star Elisabeth Moss is extraordinary as the acerbic, wounded Catherine, with Katherine Waterston (from Ridley Scott’s upcoming blockbuster, ALIEN: COVENANT) equally memorable as Virginia.
