Mara and this story both deserve better.
Una isn’t ultimately a strong enough film to do justice to its incredibly disturbing subject matter.
As a film ‘Una’ suffers from the need to open out the story for the screen: it’s loaded with flashbacks and new characters, unnecessary side business.
An agile, vicious piece of work that’s anchored by extraordinary performances from Rooney Mara and Ben Mendelsohn, “Una” maintains its grip even when swinging a bit too hard for the fences.
Ben Mendelsohn and Rooney Mara play a pedophile and his target in this edgy adaptation of the David Harrower play.
The film has a different though no less riveting intensity, thanks to Rooney Mara’s emotionally naked performance in the title role, and unflinching support from Ben Mendelsohn.
