‘Mama’ movie review


Stars:  Jessica Chastain,Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Megan Charpentier

Two little girls survive alone in the woods for five years. So were they left to their own devices or did they have help? After being taken in by their uncle and his wife, it’s clear that the sisters had some of kind assistance while they wandered the forest. But the nature of the contact will keep you on the edge of your seat, and will quite likely invade your nightmares as their “mama” comes into focus. Is mama the benevolent, nurturing force that kept the girls alive or a malevolent creature capable of unspeakable evil? –p.d. lee
