We gave it a B-

Based on a real-life rash of teen suicides in Wales, Danish director Jeppe Rønde’s 2015 Tribeca winner feels like the sort of slow BBC America procedural you’d quickly give up on. The main reason to see the film is Game of Thrones’ Hannah Murray, who plays the new girl in town trying to fit in with and make sense of the inarticulately troubled youths who are taking their own lives. Her haunted doe eyes say more about the mysterious epidemic than the script ever does. B–
