The Woman is a 2011 horror movie directed by Lucky McKee and based on the novel of the same name by Jack Ketchum. The movie stars Pollyanna McIntosh,Brandon Gerald Fuller, and Lauren Ashley Carter. The plot of The Woman revolves around a seemingly normal family living in rural America. Christopher Cleek (played by Sean Bridgers) is a successful lawyer and a devoted family man. His wife Belle (played by Angela Bettis) is a stay-at-home mom, and they have three children: a teenage daughter named Peggy (played by Lauren Ashley Carter), a preteen son named Brian (played by Zach Rand), and a young daughter named Darlin’ (played by Shyla Molhusen).

The family seems to have it all, but their perfect facade starts to crumble when Christopher discovers a feral woman (played by Pollyanna McIntosh) living in the woods. He captures her and brings her home, intending to "civilize" her. However, his attempts to tame her quickly turn into sadistic abuse.

As the movie progresses, the monstrous nature of Christopher's character becomes increasingly apparent. He is a cruel and violent man, who dominates his family and abuses his power as a lawyer. Meanwhile, the Woman begins to resist her captors and attempts to escape.

The Woman is a challenging and disturbing movie, as it explores themes of abuse, violence, and the horrors of patriarchy. The movie has been criticized for its extreme violence, but it also has been praised for its fearless exploration of the darkest aspects of human nature.

The performances in the movie are excellent, especially Pollyanna McIntosh's portrayal of the Woman. Her character is both terrifying and sympathetic, as she is shown to be a victim of violence and misogyny. Meanwhile, Sean Bridgers' performance as Christopher is chilling, as he convincingly portrays a man who is both charismatic and monstrous.

The movie has also received praise for its cinematography and soundtrack. The cinematography is dark and moody, creating a sense of foreboding throughout the movie. The soundtrack is also evocative, with a haunting score that adds to the movie's eerie atmosphere.

Overall, The Woman is a challenging and disturbing movie that is not for the faint of heart. It is a horror movie that explores the grim realities of abuse and misogyny, and it is a movie that will stay with the viewer long after it has ended.

The Woman is a 2011 drama with a runtime of 1 hour and 41 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.0 and a MetaScore of 58.
