Aro Recommended Una


UK 2016, 90 minutes
Dir. Benedict Andrews
Rating: [M]
Genres: Drama


“An agile piece of work that’s anchored by extraordinary performances from Rooney Mara and Ben Mendelsohn, Una maintains its grip even when swinging a bit too hard for the fences.”~Indiewire

Aroview: Compelling adaptation of David Harrower's two-hand play "Blackbird" that maturely navigates the thin and morally sensitive line between forbidden romance and abuse, and its longer-term consequences.

The "stage" is set fifteen years after the relationship between a 13-year-old girl (Mara, who is terrific) and a man in his thirties (Mendelsohn) ended in disgrace and imprisonment. Since released and living with a new identity, he is finally confronted by his still-devastated ex-lover and victim.
