A young woman is involuntarily committed to a mental institution, where she is confronted by her greatest fear–but is it real or a product of her delusion?
Critics Reviews of Unsane:
- “The formal playfulness may occasionally undermine Unsane's narrative tension, but it keeps the movie engaging on a visual level.” – Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader
- “Above all, he revels, with palpable joy, in his repertory of distorted, disturbing, lurid yet lucid images, making a furious movie that signifies nothing but the irrepressible vitality of the cinema itself. Soderbergh's experiment is a success.” – Richard Brody, New Yorker
- “Knowing that some of cinema's greatest performances are in B-movies, Soderbergh turns Unsane into a vehicle for Foy's ferocious presence.” – Joe McGovern, Time Out
- “Foy is excellent in a demanding role, and she brings viewers with her on a complex, emotionally knotty journey.” – Adam Graham, Detroit News
- “Although the ending is generic and needlessly protracted, the production as a whole is suspenseful – full of diabolical little twists as it ventures deep into an uncomfortable territory using the trail blazed by Misery.” – James Berardinelli, ReelViews
- “Foy owns this intimate, claustrophobic film, which at its heart is about the universal fear (especially for women, doubly so for ones seeking protection from manipulative men) of telling your story and not being believed.” – Sara Stewart, New York Post
