Maggie Gyllenhaal’s “The Lost Child”

10 Jan

Gyllenhaal’s film is minorly brilliant, haunting and unheimlich in a deep sense. But she only dedicated about 20 seconds of screen time to Oliver Jackson Cohen. WTF? That’s criminal. Why did she even bother with him?

Olivia Coleman, of course, was incredible — as always. Along with a brilliant performance, she also projects a certain kind of archetypal Englishwoman, not always in a flattering manner.
