Trapped or Confined

Hopefully you're staying safe and healthy during these strange times. As we adjust to our new routines, perhaps we can find relief in movies featuring characters trapped in circumstances even more upsetting on our own, whether it's a snowed-in cabin, a damaged space shuttle, or between a rock and...another rock.

The Forest for the Trees

Directed by Maren Ade

Psychological Drama - Rated NR - 81 Minutes - 2003

Before TV conditioned us to expect a character to turn hard to camera and wince every time something awkward or tense happened, films like Maren Ade's The Forest for the Trees required audiences to sit and stew in the discomfort rather than brushing it off with pithy looks. And she lays it on thick in her feature debut, which follows an idealistic young schoolteacher and her increasingly desperate efforts to gain respect and compassion from her students, coworkers, and neighbors. (Available on the Criterion Channel)
