Make Up

Director: Claire Oakley
Year Released: 2019
Rating: 0.5

Young Ruth (Molly Windsor) goes to stay with her boyfriend Tom (Joseph Quinn) at the trailer park where he lives (in southwestern England) but suspects him of cheating when she finds a woman's lip prints on a mirror and red hair on his bed.  For the first third she's a lethargic detective, finding clues but never directly confronting Tom about them, but then the movie decides it doesn't just want to be about jealousy, it also wants to be a coming-out story and some kind of supernatural story, and the problem is it's no good at any of those genres.  Instead of worrying about sound design, Oakley should have spent more time developing her characters who are essentially mannequins she just moves around the set.
