Description

Based on the worldwide hit play Blackbird, Una is the story of the eponymous woman who seeks to reclaim her sexuality from the man who abused her as a child 15 years earlier. As a child, Una ran away with Ray, who promised her a trip to Europe and a life free from her small town. Caught and jailed for many years, Ray is finally released and now lives an anonymous life with a new name, a new wife, and child. When Una sees his photo in a trade magazine, she seeks him out at his workplace... not to exact justice, but to rekindle the love affair that continues to mean more than anything to her. Rooney Mara makes Una a force of nature, and Benedict Andrews film has left audiences spellbound... or driven them from the theater due to its touchy subject matter. "An astonishing success." - The Film Stage
