“I’m really looking forward to see this movie, I’ve heard both good and bad things about it” said Emily Abdoney (‘19). The movie was released March 22, 2019 and has a 95% on rotten tomatoes.

There are several different ways to interpret the movie,  every image seems to be a clue for what’s about to happen, this is a movie that you definitely need to see twice each visit revealing a new secret, showing you something you missed before in a new light.

“I left the theater thinking what did I just watch, I was so confused and intrigued at the sametime” said EC Haly (‘19)


The main point of the film is how you interpret what all of the information and images shown throughout the movie mean.  In the film, the Jeremiah 11:11 (“Therefore this is what the Lord says: ‘I will bring on them a disaster they cannot escape. Although they cry out to me, I will not listen to them.”) Bible verse appears twice before pivotal moments, something to look out for while watching.

“The movie was not at all what I was expecting, I did not know what was going on half the time but I loved it!) said Grace Anthony (‘20)
