The Last Thing Mary Saw
Directed by Edoardo Vitaletti
Southold, New York, 1843: Young Mary, blood trickling from behind the blindfold tied around her eyes, is interrogated about the events surrounding her grandmother’s death. As the story jumps back, we witness Mary, raised in a repressively religious household, finding fleeting happiness in the arms of Eleanor, the home’s maid. Her family, who believe they are seeing, speaking, and acting on God’s behalf, view the girls’ relationship as an abomination, to be dealt with as severely as possible. The couple attempts to carry on in secret, but someone is always watching, or listening, and the wages of perceived sin threaten to become death, with the tension only heightened by the arrival of an enigmatic stranger and the revelation of greater forces at work. A SHUDDER ORIGINAL.
Winter, 1843. A young woman is under investigation following the mysterious death of her family's matriarch. Here, she'll shed new light on the ageless forces behind the tragedy.
Cast: Stefanie Scott, Isabelle Fuhrman, Judith Roberts, Rory Culkin
Slow to be sure, but excellent acting and ambiance.
decent movie with great time period visuals, very slow burn though not for everyone.
Can't believe I wasted time watching this to the end. The beginning was bad enough -LONG & SLOW. There were a few good moments, but not enough. The trailer was better than the movie.
Not the ending I was expecting. I hope they make a second!
