SILENT RETREAT (9:30 p.m.)[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gdfXwMw6bKk]
There’s a teenage girl in the woods. There’s a creature in the woods. There’s a deadly game at play. What more do we need?
A girl is sent to a mediation retreat for rehab, at least that’s what she thinks. In actuality, the men who sent her there are after something else and set her as a pawn in their game. If she breaks the rules, must face the creature that lurks in the woods. It’s a bit vague, and probably intentionally so, but it sounds like we’ve got a feminist, final girl thriller on our hands.
Screens with short film The Guest.
