When Molly, the troubled but dogged protagonist of KNOCKING, moves into her new apartment, she notices the word "Help" scrawled high on the elevator wall. Whether this is a random bit of graffiti or a sign of a particular hyperawareness on Molly's part — a sensitivity to cries of anguish — goes to the heart of this smart, disquieting film. Working from Emma Broström's adaptation of a novel by Johan Theorin, first-time feature director Frida Kempff embraces and revamps genre tropes, casting them in a trenchant feminist light and a character-specific poignancy. The action unfolds entirely through Molly's perspective, and Cecilia Milocco's performance, by turns guarded and explosive, is gripping from first scene to last.
