Lorna's Silence

France's Dardenne brothers (The Child, The Son) write and direct this intriguing drama about a fetching Albanian immigrant (Arta Dobroshi) who has married a recovering junkie in order to land Belgian citizenship. Eventually, we discover she's hooked up with some tres shady characters in a marriage-and-murder scheme. Slowly and with great care, the Dardennes trace Lorna's conscientious awakening and the devastating effect this has on her. The filmmakers don't provide a lot of moral guideposts, leaving audiences to draw many of their own conclusions; but the finely observed details are soul-shaking. 105 minutes R.
