Downloading Nancy

A rather dark disturbing movie. Although I found it engrossing, when I thought about it later, I realised it could've been much better, if they'd made the characters a little more nuanced.

The movie basically centers around a rather unhappily married woman, who'd been badly sexually abused in her childhood, and the lingering scars that leaves. The pain motif runs through most of the movie, and the various forms it takes.

While I loved the direction and editing, I really thought the characters could've been etched better. A few more layers to the two men, would've made it a much more thought provoking movie than it was.

Worth a watch, but only if you can stomach that kind of genre.
