Plot synopsis:
“On a day where supervisor Ray (Ben Mendelsohn) is being pressured to make a round of redundancies, he is shocked to be visited by a young and beautiful woman, Una (Rooney Mara). Fifteen years earlier, when Una was barely a teenager, the two had a forbidden romance for which Ray was arrested and imprisoned.
He has since built a new life for himself. She is a broken child-woman frozen in time. Like a wrecking ball from his past, Una’s unexpected arrival threatens to destroy his new identity. She opens the wounds of the past, wanting to destroy the man who hurt her while craving his recognition.
Memories bleed into the present. Desire is mixed up with contempt, tenderness with abuse, shame with love.”

There’s also a first official teaser poster:

Removed at the studio request.

Sounds like the girl is going through some Stockholm syndrome… What do you think?

Anyway, can’t wait to see Rooney Mara’s performance!

The film has yet to get an official release date.
