She Will(Fantastic Fest 2021) Review

Synopsis: The film explores the story of Veronica Ghent (Alice Krige) who after a double mastectomy, goes to a healing retreat in rural Scotland with her young nurse Desi (Kota Eberhardt). She discovers that the process of such surgery opens up questions about her very existence, leading her to start to question and confront past traumas. The two develop an unlikely bond as mysterious forces give Veronica the power to enact revenge within her dreams.

Review: She Will could be considered an art-house film, that tries to outsmart itself to the disdain of the final product. The moody atmosphere is there for fans of atmospheric horror, the acting is also solid from Malcolm McDowell, and Alice Krige.

However, what hurts the film most is the screenplay is often too dull for the actors to save. Kitty Percy and Charlotte Colbert had a great idea, I assume somewhere down the line they tried to write an Oscar-worthy script instead of having fun writing a small feature.

She Will will find its audience as a midnight film niche market, however, I did not necessarily enjoy this film as much as I wanted to.

Overall Grade: 2/5 stars
