Written by Erin Tatum. On that front I was a bit underwhelmed. Thankfully, the true focus of the story extended far beyond her. Guess what time of year it is! Psychology and sexuality do tend to go hand in hand no pun intended , but did we really need such an irrelevant detail? Also, since when can you evoke suspected obscure third-party masturbation as a metaphor for your own sadness? Was he masturbating and performing CPR on an infant at the same time?

The Truth About Emanuel is a soporific drama about a bond that forms between the titular teenager Kaya Scodelario and the next-door neighbor who hires her to babysit her imaginary newborn daughter. Metaphors are tools meant to be used; when left idle, they come across as affectations. A single theme—trauma leads people to retreat into their imaginations—is introduced early on. Instead of developing it, the movie reiterates this truism again and again until its shallowness becomes apparent. The result plays like bad poetry, eager to fool around with symbols, but unable to use them complexly or to realize their transformative potential.

The Truth About Emanuel – Overview/ Review (with Spoilers)

That's too soon, really, because the next hour or so consists of keeping that secret from getting out to everyone else on screen, followed by the eventual unraveling of the secret-keeper. The elaborate tap dance of protection and distraction plays like farce when it should be gripping and tense, and it's unintentionally amusing when it should be creepy or sad. Writer-director Francesca Gregorini's film just feels tonally off like that most of the time, and the inclusion of magical realism elements—while attractively photographed—only muddle matters further. In following up her boarding-school drama "Tanner Hall," Gregorini once again explores the hidden worlds that exist within women, but she does so in a way that ultimately raises more questions than it answers. And yet, the film has its moments. As the title character—spelled like the boy's name but pronounced like the Sylvia Kristel character— Kaya Scodelario has a striking presence about her, a sly subversiveness. There's a directness to her demeanor that's appealing, even though she's meant to be off-putting with intentionally shocking lines like this one from her opening voiceover: "My name is Emanuel.

The Truth About Emanuel is a American thriller drama film written, directed and produced by Francesca Gregorini. The film stars Jessica Biel, Kaya.

Emanuel: My name is Emanuel. I'm 17 years old and I killed my mother. I had her sliced open, like a goat for the slaughter, to get me pulled out. As she bled, the doctor pushed air into my lungs and pressed his hands repeatedly onto my chest, with the same rhythmic, repetitive motion that he used to jerk himself off that very morning. It worked.
