Estimable Australian Katherine Langford is fun and feisty as American schoolgirl Mara, and she has a great, tender chemistry with Charlie Plummer, who plays her sweet-natured boyfriend.

It's at times a horror film, at times a teenage romance, sometimes a comedy, other times an allegory of teenage angst. But that's what makes it strangely wonderful and fresh.

A movie that remains hypnotic and confident even when it starts to meander, repeating variations of the same situation.
