Synopsis:
Based on David Harrower's celebrated play Blackbird, 'Una' stars the Oscar-nominated Rooney Mara and Golden Globe-nominated Ben Mendelsohn, following a young woman's journey to reclaim her past. Fifteen years earlier, teenage Una (Mara) ran away with an older man, Ray (Mendelsohn), a crime for which he was arrested and imprisoned. When she comes across a photo of him in the present, Una tracks him down to his workplace, and her abrupt arrival threatens to destroy Ray's new life - all the while derailing her precarious stability.
Unspoken secrets and buried memories surface as Una and Ray sift through the wreckage of the past, confronting unanswered questions and unresolved longings, ultimately shaking them both to the core. 'Una' gazes into the heart of devastation and asks if redemption is possible.

Reviews (5) of Una

I suspect this would work better as a play in the theatre, which it originally was - Una review by PV

Spoiler Alert
05/04/2018

This is a very stagy, very theatrical film - nothing can disguise the fact this started out as a theatre play.

I suppose it was a success because it tapped into the trend of obsessing about child abuse.

It's watchable but nothing very daring or controversial even here - and the dots are joined in a bit of a clunky way, all engineered for us to have sympathy with the female character.

A curiosity really p and I was baffled from the start at why the man seemed to have an Australian accent!

No sympathetic characters,

confused morals,

the timeline did not work ,

pretentious rubbish,

Waste of an evening,

Wished we’d turned off after 10 mins.

A tad OTT - Una review by AR

Spoiler Alert

I agree with the other reviewers ... and didn’t like some of the unnecessary sexual language going on ...
