Storyline

On the wings of a bad break-up, Alice arrives unannounced at her estranged brother Ethan's house in an attempt to reconcile. While avoiding entirely their family's stormy past - she begins to question how he has managed to mysteriously inherit and keep his grand home. Whether related to the stress permeating the thick air of the home or simply a random occurrence, she also begins to have bizarrely haunting dreams that find her somersaulting out of bed in the night. For his part, Ethan is seemingly preoccupied with drawing parallel lines, and fixating longingly on a painting of a circle of stones on the beach. He loses himself in these habits, so much so that he begins to lose his favorite pen and, possibly, his mind. While wavering on the precipice of sanity, the appearance of a random sinkhole in the backyard becomes a new cause for obsession, for both of them, as well. The arrival of Ethan's girlfriend Misty detracts attention away from this natural phenomenon and onto the sibling's... Written by lament

"Hey, stop acting weird."
8 January 2019 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Alice (Abbey Lee Kershaw) arrives unannounced at her estranged brother Ethan (Caleb Landry Jones)'s mansion. He reluctantly allows her to stay overnight. The siblings have a mysterious mommy issue with their late mother. Ethan's girlfriend Misty (Riley Keough) arrives.

"Hey, stop acting weird.", Ethan tells Alice in front of Misty. That's what I want to say to this movie. Writer/director Justin Kelly is trying really hard to be arthouse worthy with close-ups, mumblecore, a portal to nowhere, and a strange psychosexual mystery. It's trying too hard and being too weird. Abbey Lee has the haunted emaciated look of a supermodel. Caleb looks like a creepy serial killer. They're acting strange for the sake of the movie. It's play acting. It could still be saved by an amazing ending to wrap it up. Instead, it does the amateur move and does it without the kinetic energy to drive it home. This is a slow, long tease to a hollow ending and doesn't explain some of the more weird elements.
