A once-promising student finds herself in a dire predicament when the voices in her head grow too loud to ignore, and her fear of failure forces her to take drastic action against the oppressive forces that surround her. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"[A] workaday psychological thriller which, although decently crafted, lacks even a scintilla of subtlety or ambition."
‑ David Jenkins, Time Out
"An unsettling, unconventional and delicately-handled piece quite unlike anything our film industry is pumping out these days."
‑ David Edwards, Daily Mirror [UK]
"A funny film, but not in a ha ha way."
‑ Zara Miller, Little White Lies
"It's poorly plotted, deeply uninvolving tosh that makes you cringe for Grant and the estimable Tamsin Greig as his colleague and former protégé."
‑ Henry Fitzherbert, Daily Express
"An alarming head-scratcher, but hopefully a blip for this still-promising creative team."
‑ Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
"Bracewell's lofty ambitions are clear to see in what is an obvious labour of love, but they simply don't come off in a mess of clichés and barely adequate performances."
‑ Alan Jones, Radio Times
"A centrepiece monologue from Grant on CIA experimentation shows some style, but it's too little, too late, and is rendered moot by the underwhelming climax."
‑ Andrew Lowry, Total Film
"Creepy claustrophobic for a bit, it dissolves quickly into suspenseless drift - not all of it coherent."
‑ Cath Clarke, Guardian
"With its unengaging characters and a plot that jacknifes inexplicably, there's little to like here. A thriller without many thrills."
‑ Philip Wilding, Empire Magazine
