Director Charlotte Colbert's debut feature film is a confidently handled horror drama that offers a visceral exploration of aging, gender, history, and revenge. The horror elements in She Will are artistic and sensual, building slowly and atmospherically rather than grabbing hold of cheap scares. The witty script heightens proceedings further to mark this as a smart, accomplished offering. Though the movie actively references the patriarchy and the plot involves vengeance against a past abuser, it is less heavy handed than other films with similar messages, yet remains a decidedly feminist vision.

Krige is suitably bewitching as Veronica. She's both hardened and knowing, yet vulnerable and open to the primal connections that tether her to the surrounding landscape and its potent history. Eberhardt is equally captivating as her kindly nurse-turned ally -- the bond between the two further cementing the focus on female empowerment. Well-cast appearances from Malcolm McDowell and Rupert Everett add to the solid cast. However, the men take a back seat here to a rich, intimate portrait of a woman reckoning with the past and future.
