Elephant Song is a psychological thriller film that was released in 2014. The movie is directed by Charles Binamé and stars Bruce Greenwood, Xavier Dolan, and Carrie-Anne Moss. The story is set in a mental institution, where a man named Michael (Xavier Dolan) has disappeared. Dr. Toby Green (Bruce Greenwood), a psychiatrist at the institution, is assigned to investigate Michael's disappearance. Dr. Green begins his investigation by questioning Michael's psychiatrist, Dr. Lawrence (Colm Feore), and the institution's director, Dr. Greenberg (Catherine Keener).

Dr. Greenberg seems to be hiding something, and Dr. Green begins to suspect that Michael's disappearance is related to a patient named Gabriel (Carrie-Anne Moss). Gabriel is a patient who doesn't speak and communicates only through piano playing. Dr. Green becomes convinced that Gabriel is the key to solving the mystery of Michael's disappearance and decides to use unconventional methods to get through to her.

Throughout the movie, Dr. Green is haunted by the memory of his own daughter, who died in a car accident. He often has flashbacks of the accident and struggles to keep his emotions in check. Meanwhile, Gabriel's playing becomes increasingly erratic, and Dr. Green begins to suspect that she might be manipulating him.

As Dr. Green delves deeper into the mystery of Michael's disappearance, he becomes increasingly paranoid and starts to question his own sanity. The movie builds to a tense and unsettling conclusion, leaving the audience questioning what is real and what is not.

The performances in Elephant Song are excellent, particularly from Bruce Greenwood and Xavier Dolan. Greenwood plays Dr. Green with a quiet intensity, and Dolan is excellent as the enigmatic Michael. Carrie-Anne Moss is also great as Gabriel, even though she doesn't have any lines of dialogue.

The movie's cinematography is also worth noting. The film is shot in a cold, clinical style, which adds to the sense of unease that permeates throughout the movie. The use of music, particularly Gabriel's piano playing, is also effective in creating a haunting atmosphere.

In summary, Elephant Song is a thought-provoking and unsettling movie. The performances are great, and the cinematography and music add to the movie's sense of unease. If you're a fan of psychological thrillers, Elephant Song is definitely worth checking out.

Elephant Song is a 2017 drama with a runtime of 1 hour and 40 minutes. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.5.
