Did You Know?


In the movie, Ann's age is never specified, though Caleb (Chris Pine) remarks to Loomis (Chiwetel Ejiofor) that she seems older than her chronological age. In Robert C. O'Brien's source novel, Ann is only sixteen years old. See more »


Ann uses a Celsius thermometer, despite all of the references to the film taking place in the United States. Fahrenheit thermometers are ubiquitous in the States, Celsius thermometers are much more common in New Zealand where the film was made. See more »

Strong, ambitious work
4 January 2016 | by Red_IdentitySee all my reviews

I was a big fan of Margot Robbie's work in The Wolf of Wall Street. I thought it was a fun, charismatic, electric turn, but I wasn't necessarily sure if that meant that she was an actual, capable dramatic actress. This really proves that she's one to watch out for. Although all three performers deliver some strong work, it's her moving, resonant performance that really stuck with me. I kept hearing a lot of negativity towards this film's ending and so I was sure it would be something out of left field, some turn or twist or something. It wasn't really any of that, and I actually loved the ending. It was semi-ambiguous, although not really, and the last scene was just pure magic and worked to conclude the film, beautifully. Definitely a very underrated, underseen film that I wish I had heard about before.
