No one cared thus far. Do you?

AKA:
Directed by: Benedict Andrews
Starring: Rooney Mara (Una), Ben Mendelsohn (Ray/Peter), Ruby Stokes (Young Una), Riz Ahmed (Scott), Tara Fitzgerald (Mother)
Country: UK
Language: English (Optional English subs)
Runtime: 01:34:18
Genres: Old-Young Relationships, Teen-Childhood, Based on a True Story

Plot – Spoilers:
28-year-old Una lives with her sickly mother. While their relationship appears strained and even on edge, Una is meekish in her mother’s presence and tries to spend as much time outside home as her guilt will allow her to.

She sees the photo of a much older man Ray in a magazine and this brings back memories from when she was 13-years-old and in a three-month-long abusive relationship with him.

Una decides to turn up at his factory floor where he’s now a manager under a new name and confront him about their past. Her questions and emotions are complex and they bit-by-bit construct the extent of her abuser’s role and influence.

This is vaguely based on a true story in the sense that the film’s origin lies in a play, which in turn was loosely inspired by convicted sex offender Toby Studebaker.

Hmmm. Good movie. But the ending… well, lets just say it was anticlimactic at best. It really left the whole thing hanging like a flaccid porn star. Other then that it’s another fine film from the good people at…. EFFFFFFFFED-UUUUUUUUUUUPPP-MOOOOOVIEEEEES!

Liked the story. Really hate that their relationship is still there. He took advantage of a very young, naive girl and she should know that by now. Doesn’t matter if he was “in love with her” or not.

A sex offender gets out of a jail, he is allowed to change his name and despite the criminal background he becomes a floor manager? Is it a science fiction movie?

unbelievably well acted by the two main characters. It seems like he has learned his lesson, and all she needed is a true boyfriend in the end. A very descent effedup film courtesy of EUM.

Effed up subject, but it doesn’t show anything effed up.. there’s more old-young relationship in Stephen King’s Gerald’s Game than in this one

Too bad they can’t make these kinds of movies well done

4/10

Clinquant performances from Rooney and Ben. I resonate consequentially with ‘Una’, having experienced such similarly myself whilst attending Melbourne Girls Grammar in my adolescent years. I have seen this coruscating film on a plethora of occasions, it never fails to convoke my melancholia and profound discomfiture… I was so young and jejune.
