Kathryn, a struggling actress and unfulfilled housewife, becomes involved with her new gardener, Ben. As he gives her the attention and sensitivity she craves, they start to fall for each other. But Ben is not what he seems.Apparently, this is a remake of a 1960s film, which was controversial when it was released and was considered lost until 2016. It reminded me of a few other films such as Under the Silver Lake, Andrew Garfield’s random stares are still vivid to this day.It has definitely surpassed my expectation because I went in with the thought that, it was going to be another break into the house film and a dark comedy. The slowness of the plot pushes you to dissect everything and what everyone’s motives are, so in the end, you’re left with lingering thoughts throughout. Hence why the slow burn plot style was appropriate to slowly build up the twist everyone is waiting for. By deconstructing the main events, the director gives a new perspective on what the future entails for these characters.
