The girl was born into a total all-female cult that has been led by the man in their mix starts to ask queries about her own reality and her teachings.
For her whole life, the cult that she had been born into had been all that teens Selah (Raffey Cassidy) had known. Down along with the band of the same cloistered very young women she lived seemingly not stuck in time, bring to an end from the modern society in the remote jungle commune presided over through the guy named as Shepherd (Michiel Huisman), the controlling, messiah-like stature with the frightening dark side. However, when her insular humanity is being rocked by the sequence of nightmarish dreams and disturbing exposures, Selah starts to ask all things about her existence—with her allegiance to an increasingly dangerous Shepherd. Soaked in the imagery of the dreamlike, primal dread, the provocative fable is the haunting vision of the adolescent revolt and awakening.
This is a story of the Christianesqe cult of every woman and their only master living out there in the woods. I do not see why is it that this is touted to be one horror, marketing gambit movie. It is the lady’s pleasure to serve the shepherd feet and hands with the booty. It is a very long, slo, drawn out tale of one of the daughters that finally open her eyes to the actual “ideology” and the actual treatment of those women. Furthermore, it did not hurt his personal arrogance, and at last, took the best of him. With as slow as this movie and maybe not as the horror story as like this, it was somehow held off by a story. You will see yourself drawn – maybe by a lush cinematography.
