“Black Bear” (REVIEW) Plaza Simmers with Intensity in this Gripping Thriller!

My review of the dramatic thriller BLACK BEAR starring Aubrey Plaza, Sarah Gadon, and Christopher Abbott.



Synopsis

At a remote lake house, a filmmaker named Allison (Aubrey Plaza) arrives to play house guest to a troubled couple (Christopher Abbott and Sarah Gadon), who have eschewed their life in the city after inheriting a family retreat. Battling writer’s block, Allison sparks a calculated game of desire and jealousy in pursuit of a new work that blurs the boundaries of autobiography and invention. BLACK BEAR explores the complex nature of relationships, gender dynamics, and the erratic nature of love as it traces the conflict between our lust and our longing for internal harmony.
