Somewhere Quiet

Olivia West Lloyd, USA 2023, 102’
International premiere
Peak Season Summer Solstice

A psychological thriller with a circular plot that tightens like a noose around the main character’s neck. Though Meg manages to escape her kidnappers, is it possible to return to normal after such trauma? And can a film ever completely tell this kind of a story?
