In a weird and wonderful version of what might be the 17th Century, a married couple of puppeteers entertain the common people on stage. But off stage he abuses her, culminating in an act of such bizarre cruelty that revenge is the only justifiable option. Mia Wasikowska stars as the wronged Judy, who takes to the woods with other women outcasts. Damon Herriman (Charles Manson in Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood) is the unlovable Punch. With echoes of The Crucible and Terry Gilliam, director Mirrah Foulkes has pulled off a remarkable piece of cinema.
