A psychiatrist, played by Casey Affleck, has a patient who takes their own life. As he is stumbling forward, his family reaches out to help the deceased patient’s brother, played by Cam Claflin. However, the brother’s motives toward the psychiatrist’s family are questionable and tear the family apart.

We are well aware of the controversy around Casey Affleck. The allegations, his initial reaction, and more recent acceptance of criticism. All that being said, some might have felt that this actor has grown since his transgressions in 2010, and reaccept him for his attempts to correct the underrepresentation and treatment of women. That choice exists personally in all movie goes, and we leave the final decision in your hands.

About this movie though, if you are looking for a grief-stricken film with a thriller-horror vibe, then this film fits all those topics. It’s unsettling, and covers topics of suicide, and infidelity and is a powerful story of when things break.
