2016 Let Her Out
During a raging snowstorm, drifter returns home to the blue-collar bar located in the remote Canadian town. When he offers to settle an old debt with the bartender by telling him a story, the night’s events quickly spin into a dark tale.
In this minimalist thriller that unfolds through the telling of stories, the film’s few characters progressively unveil themselves through precise, but shrewdly constructed dialogue, with top-notch actors delivering a steady stream of biting repartees.
What distinguishes The Oak Room from other exhilarating snowscape thrillers is its ingenious Russian doll structure. Story after story and stories withing stories collide with the truth of who people are and their motives, prolonging doubt and palpitating suspense up the very end
