Look Away: Directed by Assaf Bernstein. With India Eisley, Jason Isaacs, Mira Sorvino, Penelope Mitchell. Maria, an alienated high-school student, has her life turned upside down when she switches places with her sinister mirror image.
The idea that there’s another darker version of you on the other side of the mirror is nothing new, but this is one of the better versions of that story. India Eisley is a new actor to me, but she absolutely killed in in “Look Away” playing two versions of the same mousey high schooler and Assaf Bernstein uses some exceptionally good camera work with angles and and tricks that work horrifyingly well. Jason Isaacs does well as the father that isn’t loving or supporting enough and Mira Sorvino is the mother that’s present but not really, but with some good reasons.
