One of the strangest, not to mention creepiest, films I have seen in awhile is the critically acclaimed and much raved about film, ‘Fresh.’ It is the story about a young woman, Noa (portrayed by Daisy Edgar-Jones), who is tired of the dating scene and meeting losers. She has a best friend that she confides in, Mollie (portrayed by Jonica T. Gibbs). One day she is in a grocery store minding her business when she comes across a young, handsome guy named Steve (portrayed by Sebastian Stan) and they hit it off. The next thing you know they are dating and after what is really a very short time, Steve asks Noa to go out of town with him on a trip. Telling her friend about this trip, Mollie tells Noa she is concerned about her going away with a guy so soon. Well, let’s just say that Mollie has good instincts. It is hard to review this film without giving the critical details of the story away but needless to say, Noa finds out that Steve has a very strange appetite.
While I don’t need to watch this film again, as once is enough because of the subject matter, I will say that the acting is great and it is an impressive directorial debut by Mimi Cave. It ends as I was hoping so that is a good thing I liked about I the film as well. This is a definitely different film and just be prepared is all I can say.
