Rooney Mara, one of my favorite actors, stars in this dour tale of early abuse of a 13 year old by her neighbor. It wasn’t sexual abuse according to the neighborhood husband who fell in love with her. They tell different stories of the day he “left” her. He was convicted and went to jail. This story begins when she as a grown woman goes to find him, many years after his release. If they would have stayed focused making this story, I would have been happier, and it includes unnecessary subplots which derail its continuity. It could have been a contender.
