**An event that changed Ruth's life forever!** Netflix's another future cult film. It deserved all the praises it had received. Those discarded actors joined hands here and it was Macon Blair's directional debut too. He also wrote for it, but sadly he stood only at behind the camera, except a tiny cameo. He has done his part magnificently. And so do the actors. Elijah Wood's one of the best films outside the LOTR. And Melanie Lynskey, I don't know when I saw her last time in a film, though good to see her in such a wonderful film. Ruth's life is nothing but a mechanical life. She has no friends or a boyfriend. But one day when her house got robbed, that triggers her to take up the challenging task which is to hunt down the culprit. On her mission, an unusual friendship blossom with a neighbour. At first, it all goes smoothly, but once they make a direct contact with the burglar, their life's changes. It now gets very serious and there's no stepping back. So how they manage it all are the puzzle of the remaining tale. So much fun to watch. I liked all the developments, how the events turned out one after another. But that final scene at the woods was a bit clichéd. That should have been different, to end the story on high. I only say don't miss it. The film posters are not impressive, but the film was excellent. Guaranteed entertainment, for most of the people. One of the year's best films. _8/10_
