Relic (2020, dir. Natalie Erika James)
An old woman goes missing, but returns: her daughter and granddaughter try to care for her, but something is awry. Excellent sombre chamber piece that works both as a horror story and as an allegory of aging, the impacts of dementia, and of family responsibility. Recommended.
Writes. Latest: 2019: East of England - a noir thriller.
