Marina Antunes [Celluloid 01.17.20] Canada thriller mystery

A young woman returns home to Niagara Falls after the death of her mother. She and her sister are estranged but the pair must come together to decide what to do with their mother's dilapidated motel. Abby want to save it, Laure wants to get rid of it.

The sibling drama that launches Albert Shin's sophomore effort Disappearance at Clifton Hill (review takes a back seat shortly after the sisters arrive in the place they grew up. To the forefront comes the mystery that plagues Abby, played by Tuppence Middleton, a kidnapping she thinks she witnessed and suppressed when she was a young girl.

Said kidnapping becomes an obsession which also comes to involve a local historian and podcaster, played wonderfully by David Cronenberg. The film also stars Hannah Gross and Aaron Poole.

Disappearance at Clifton Hill is a moody bit of filmmaking, memorable primarily for the performances from Middleton and yes, Cronenberg who proves he really makes a case for how great a podcast featuring the master of body horror could be.

Disappearance at Clifton Hill premiered at TIFF last year. It opens theatrically and will be available on VOD February 28.
