Not al­to­gether pleas­ant, but un­de­ni­ably grip­ping

Malta Independent - - CINEMA -

To dis­tract her­self from a life that’s grown so aimless, Rachel de­vel­ops an ob­ses­sion with the oc­cu­pants of an­other house on the route, 15 Beck­ett Road—a few doors down from where she used to re­side. There, bliss­fully un­aware that a stranger is long­ingly watching, the seem­ingly per­fect cou­ple Megan (HA­LEY BEN­NETT of The Equal­izer, The Mag­nif­i­cent Seven) and Scott (LUKE EVANS of Drac­ula Un­told, up­com­ing Beauty and the Beast) go about the busi­ness of subur­ban life.

For months, in be­tween furtive sips of the liquor that’s be­come a con­stant com­pan­ion, Rachel has stolen glimpses of the stun­ning Megan and hand­some Scott as they drink morn­ing cof­fee by their win­dows or laugh on their porch at night­time—and imag­ined how idyl­lic their world must be. The seem­ingly care­free young woman is the por­trait of ev­ery­thing that Rachel tried to be dur­ing her years with Tom, in a mar­riage from which she re­fuses to let go.
