Camila (Monique Gabriela Curnen) is a single mum low on cash who still wants to offer her son Jaime (Luke Ganalon) the best life she can, so she accepts an offer from realtor Brenda (Kathy Baker) to make up a rather luxurious house in a deserted neighbourhood for showings, in exchange for lodgings in same house for several months. Soon though, it becomes clear that Camila's problems run deeper than just making her ends meet, and its not just her occasional shoplifting or forging cheques, her addiction to all sorts of medication, her obsession with crafting, and the fact her paperwork isn't in order - eventually she also steals a car, makes a bum (Jasper Cole) trying to sifon off her gasoline her captive and "transforms" him into a perfect husband, then tries "plastic surgery" on herself using a hammer, and it becomes more and more obvious that she lives in her own catalogue-perfect world and now tries to remodel the real world after it on a large scale - and that's all before things start to get lethal ...

 

A most unusual movie for sure, this one takes a deliberately slowburn approach to things and always makes sure the audience isn't fed an ounce of information too much, so the real scale of Camila's (and in the process the film's) insanity is only revealed very gradually, turning the film from a more earth-bound social drama into pretty much a madhouse by the by. This all is thanks to a script that refuses to follow any formula, at times ignores structure for maximum effect, and refuses any obvious reveals, and a directorial effort that finds the grotesque in the mundane and the mundane in the grotesque really helps here. And of course, a solid key cast doesn't hurt one bit, either.

Rather unique, but if the slightly absurd's your thing, than this is really worth a look.
