34 of #52FilmsByWomen: The Invitation


The Invitation (2015, Directed by Karyn Kusama)

[No. 34 of 52 in #52FilmsByWomen]

Whether or not you care about spoilers, we can’t deny that genre convention does play a lot with our expectations and preconceived notions about the movie. Sometimes a movie may play around with these conventions, and lead to true surprises even for experienced movie connoisseurs.  This is why I recommend watching The Invitation completely cold and not knowing anything about it’s plot or story. (Seriously, don’t even check its IMDB page)

What little non-spoiler synopsis is like this: Will and Kira attends a dinner party hosted by Will’s ex-wife Eden. They are joined by their mutual friends, most of whom Will seemed to have lost contact with since their divorce. And it all goes along from there.
