"In Jane Campion’s tense and stellar detective mystery, Moss is equal parts fierce and wounded. Never more so than during a scene at her hometown bar when she confronts a dirtbag who raped her years ago. First she’s flirtatious, willing the sod to drop his guard, and then she smashes a glass on him, letting loose a guttural howl of rage. It’s a primal, perfectly calibrated performance, and one that proves Moss is so much more than our beloved Peggy on Mad Men.”
