East Coast premiere; Q&A with director Corey Deshon

Held against her will inside an isolated house deep in the woods, a young woman has no choice but to challenge the interpersonal dynamics and self-imposed rules of her captors, a three-person nuclear family that believes the air outside is toxic and that the apocalypse has arrived. Meticulous with its mix of dread and psychological complexities, writer-director Corey Deshon’s unique debut upends familiar doomsday cinema tropes with intelligence and audacity. —Matt Barone
