Queen of the Earth (2015)

Alex Ross Perry directs Elisabeth Moss, Katherine Waterston and Patrick Fugit in this drama about two friends sharing a summer house while one overcomes a harsh break-up. 

I absolutely rate Elisabeth Moss but even she couldn’t save this. You can see her acting when usually you cannot, if that makes sense? Pretentious… it goes nowhere slowly. Borrowing heavily from Polanski’s Repulsion and Fassbinder’s The Bitter Tears of Petra Von Kant yet sunny, cautious and only occasionally daringly framed. A yawner.
