    brilliant. BRILLIANT!!!!!! absolutely captivating from start to finish. one of the smartest, most well-written thrillers i've seen in a long time. i will be thinking about this movie for weeks. the academy is not worthy of king john cho's performance.

    SUNDANCE 2019 ENTRY #2:

    “You’ll forget. Everyone will.” A sensitive, nimble, haunting drama about trauma’s inescapability and memory’s unreliability. The minimalist dialogue and rich visuals say so much without saying much at all. Felt like an anti-“13 Reasons Why” in that it gave a humanistic portrayal of victimhood and sexual assault without leaning into exploitative territory.
