I lean toward films that present clever and strong character development. I had absolutely no expectation of this in The Survivalist but I was pleasantly surprised. The director and actors carried out the difficult task of presenting moviegoers with nonverbal character development. The changes of intensity in their eyes, the slight nuances in the movement of their bodies, and just the energy that each of them exulted as they interacted with one another was impressive. For example (spoiler): When Milja and Kathryn plotted the murder of the survivalist by feeding him poisoned mushrooms, the subtle hint that Milja was bonding with the survivalist coupled with the nonchalant, yet empowering way she prepared the dish lead me to suspect that Milja was going to protect her man while rebelling against her mom in one swoop. Mia Goth's unpretentious and youthful personality that she displays in her interview (in the Extras of the DVD) affirms her stellar skills as an actor.
