A slow-burn witch tale turned on its head. We explore how director Robert Eggers uses film to guide our perception to tell this tale of survival against the wilds in New England. Masculine toxicity, isolationism, coming of age, and general fear of the unknown play a key role in this film as we continually question: what’s really witchcraft and what’s not.
