In this time-twisting, fashion-filled thriller, Anya Taylor-Joy plays Ellie, a country girl and aspiring fashion designer who has just moved to London, but can't seem to fit in. She's at first inspired by visions of a confident and mysterious blonde girl from the 1960s in her dreams, but when her world begins to bleed into Ellie's, a new nightmare begins—all set against a soundtrack of classic '60s songs, some of which inspired sequences in the film.

His parents, both Protestants but wanting nothing to do with the violence, must make the difficult decision of whether or not they should stay in Belfast.
