Plot:
Reed (Christopher Abbott) has a wife (Laia Costa), a baby and a pretty good life. Unable to shake the urge to kill, though, one night, he has to leave them: he wants to hire an escort and plans to kill her. He finds Jackie (Mia Wasikowska) who is taken in by his good looks and charm, so his plan is off to a good start. But things do take a different turn than he anticipated.

Piercing is a strange film. It’s fucked up, but it’s also very romantic in a way. Whatever it is, I was completely engrossed in it.
