Based on David Harrower’s award winning play Blackbird, Una is a compelling drama that walks an ambiguous tightrope around the aftermath of a taboo relationship between an older man and a 13-year-old girl. With deft and delicate handling by first time director Benedict Andrews, instead of a salacious piece of exploitation the audience is drawn into a character driven, suspense-filled thriller. The secrets of the past threaten to unravel Ray's (Ben Mendelsohn) new life when a young woman named Una (Rooney Mara) unexpectedly comes looking for answers. Fifteen years earlier, when she was just 13, Una ran away with Ray, her middle-aged neighbor. Ray was subsequently arrested and imprisoned for having sex with a minor, while Una faced constant judgement and shame. When Una comes across a photo of Ray in an article years later, she tracks him down to his workplace. Una's surprise appearance threatens to destroy Ray's new life and he wants nothing to do with her. But what does she want? Answers? Revenge? Or something else?
