This feeble sub-‘Sleuth’ Brit thriller takes place entirely in the slickly designed London flat of Pippa (Daisy Lowe), an ex-model suffering from agoraphobia after a car crash said to have left her with a ‘mangled face’ (in reality, she looks like she’s been scratched by the cat). A vague and ever-shifting battle of wills emerges when Pippa finds herself in the middle of a robbery involving Kayleigh (Eliza Bennett, trying her best with a terrible script) and her hot-headed accomplice Henry (Alfie Allen, mostly gagged or unconscious). The film’s many twists are vague or dull, while its attempts to wring meaning from role-playing and power games mostly fall flat. It’s directed adequately enough, but the script and performances are lacking, even if Lowe, herself a model, makes her feature acting debut without disgrace.
