Sarah Paulson's brilliantly tense thriller Run is now available to watch at home
90 minutes long. 90% on Rotten Tomatoes. A perfect viewing addition for your weekend.
No matter what film or TV show Sarah Paulson decides to star in, you're always guaranteed that she'll be the best thing in it. Be it big budget outings like Ocean's 8 and American Horror Story, or revelling in the darker side of humanity in 12 Years A Slave and Ratched, she's never anything short of phenomenal.
And so it is with Run, a new 90-minute thriller starring Paulson, immediately shooting it to the top of our must-watch list.
The plot is as follows:
Chloe (Keira Allen), a teenager who is confined to a wheelchair, is home schooled by her mother (Sarah Paulson). However, her mother's strange behaviour doesn't go unnoticed and when Chloe pries into some private papers, she discovers a Change of Name Certificate document with her mother's name, Diane Sherman, on it. When Chloe googles "Diane Sherman," the internet suddenly disconnects. Chloe becomes suspicious of all that her mother does, suspecting her of something sinister. She decides to go on the run in her wheelchair in a desperate attempt to get away from her.
The reviews for the movie have been fantastically positive, resulting in 90% on Rotten Tomatoes:
Entertainment Weekly - "A brittle, nasty bit of fun."
FilmWeek - "It's so small that it becomes thrilling. You're really right there with [Kiera Allen] as you're panicking._
Crooked Marquee - "It's a lean 90 minutes, and you want the experience to be over in the best of ways: it's almost too intense at points, and you need to take a breath."
The Maine Edge - "Run is a taut, well-constructed thriller...the sort of wild story that could easily have spiralled out-of-control, but even those moments that go bonkers high manage to reach the top without ever going over it."
Entertainment Voice - "Paulson's performance is what helps make this a wicked enjoyment in the tradition of classic paranoid thrillers."
Run is available to watch on Netflix from today (Friday, 2 April).
