The female counterpoint to Shame, this dark, anti-erotic fable about youth and age follows a university student and sex worker (Emily Browning) who submits to her clients’ desires while drugged into unconsciousness. “This is a brave, thoughtful, highly accomplished debut that rewards as much as it challenges.” (Total Film)
