This was hard to watch I had to stop and fast forward, then thinking the woman abuse was over... it wasn’t.. I have to say it should come with a warning, it was hard to watch

Masterful filmmaking. Every single second of this film feels authentic and lived in. The performances from all involved are of top tier conviction and dedication. I subscribed to Shudder for the B movies and it keeps giving me hidden gems of overlooked cinema. There's more truth and honesty in this script than any other historical drama or period piece to come out of mainstream Hollywood in the last 5 years.

Crazy stuff. Few scenes were difficult to watch. Her anger in the beginning felt brutal, but she was very soft, haha ugh. The story and the character, Billy, made up for the somewhat disappointing ending. I kinda wish they sang together.

Beautiful and nerve racking. More a historical horror then the usual. I really liked it and I am a blood and guts type. Cheers
