Screening Passes to Unsane
Making a startling trip into thriller territory with Unsane, director Steven Soderbergh plunges audiences into the suspense and drama of a resilient woman’s (Claire Foy, The Crown) fight to reclaim her freedom even as she risks her own sanity. Scarred from the trauma of being stalked, quick-witted Sawyer Valentini (portrayed by Ms. Foy) has relocated from Boston to Pennsylvania for a new life. As her mother Angela (Academy Award nominee Amy Irving) misses her back home and her office job is hardly an ideal employment opportunity, Sawyer remains on edge following her two years of being terrorized. To consult with a therapist, she goes for follow-up treatment at the Highland Creek Behavioral Center. Sawyer’s initial therapy session at the suburban complex run by clinician Ashley Brighterhouse (Aimée Mullins, Stranger Things) progresses well — until she unwittingly signs herself in for voluntary 24-hour commitment. Unable to leave the premises, Sawyer finds herself in close quarters with previously committed hellion Violet (Juno Temple, The Dark Knight Rises) and savvy Nate (Jay Pharoah, Saturday Night Live), who is battling an opioid addiction. Sawyer expects to be out of Highland Creek within hours. But once she catches sight of facility staffer George Shaw (Joshua Leonard, The Blair Witch Project), she is terrified and then enraged because she is convinced that Shaw’s real name is David Strine and that he is her stalker. But is it real or is it a product of her delusion? As none of the doctors and nurses believe she is in danger, and all question her sanity, Sawyer’s stay at Highland Creek is extended indefinitely. Sawyer realizes that in order to survive she will have to battle her demons and fight her way out.
