Firstborn┬áis quite a remarkable film as it manages to blend a revenge thriller with a very archaic drama of self discovery and a quite disturbing character study, all told in a way that leaves much of the story open to interpretation. This is of course due to a clever script that’s helped by a directorial effort that does rely on strong imagery while at the same time giving the cast enough room to breathe life into their characters, and that said, the acting’s strong as well. Quite an unusual experience that’s well worth one’s while.” – SearchMyTrash
