Staring Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy from HBO's hit series Game of Thrones) and Eliza Bennett (Nanny McPhee, The Prince and Me, Inkheart) Having been facially disfigured, Pippa lives a sheltered life alone in her home which, though attractive, is unmistakably representative of her isolation and solitude. Routine however, soon gives way to uncertain chaos with the arrival of confident crook Kayleigh. (Eliza Bennett). As Kayleigh casually roams the flat we are left to speculate who is at the other end of her phone, and whether this sweet-voiced intruder is willing to make use of the gun that she carries in order to get what she wants. Confine is shot entirely inside the victim’s flat with a small principal cast (which also includes Alfie Allen). Two volatile central characters brings a level of insecurity and suspense throughout and the film finds an unpredictable rhythm of calm and frenzy. This is a slick, innovative take on the hostage thriller and serves as an unforgettable reminder to take your burglar alarm more seriously.
