Psychosexual tensions boil over in this hair-raising erotic drama, set on an idyllic farm in the Kentucky countryside. When hired hand Akin (DIY staple Joe Swanberg) arrives to help out for the summer, he becomes increasingly entangled with the mysterious and emotionally manipulative relationship between farmer (Robert Longstreet) and daughter. Using time-lapse photography and shifting points of view, Decker imbues the bucolic scenery with a mounting sense of dread that evokes John Steinbeck and David Lynch.
