Director Brandon Slagle takes his time setting the melancholy tone of Rose's life, both the little bit with her family as a kid and as a young woman after they are killed in quite the traumatic event. While Rose lives in the convent she is sent to, the camera moves slowly, the actors speak slowly, and it's all confidently done and reflects the stillness she feels inside of her, the sense of feeling "frozen" that she often mentions in the first and second act. On top of all of this is a grand score that hints at bigger things to come. There's an awakening coming...and it feels dangerous.The Dawn is a slow burn of a film, admirably settling the viewer into the world with these characters. As mentioned before, an awakening is coming, and just as it grips the convent and its inhabitants, threatening to shake it all apart, the viewer is shaken out of their reverie cast by the film. It's a nice technique that helps raise the stakes and get the viewer more invested in the story, as well as offer a false sense of sanctuary.Tying this all together is Devanny Pinn as Rose, an extraordinarily gifted actress who has the ability to feel her characters on a deep level. Like in House of Manson, Dwelling, and Crossbreed before this, Pinn portrays Rose with an unassuming confidence, visibly relating emotion and inner thought through her eyes. This internal struggle is the deep level that Pinn constantly taps into, and she's a compelling actress because of it, impossible not to watch whenever she's in the frame.Because The Dawn just looks so damn good, some special shout-outs are in order for some of the unsung heroes of the film crew. First, kudos to casting director Scotty Mullen for the casting of Teilor Grubbs as young Rose. Grubbs looks so much like a young Devanny Pinn that it's immediately known Grubbs is the young version of Rose, even without knowing the character's name. The resemblance is uncanny, and Grubbs was a great find for the film. Next, the costume design by Kaytee Papusza and set decoration by Julia Moore and Renee Pilon really create the post World War I time period with impressive detail. The production design as a whole is extremely well done, giving the film the grand feel to match the score mentioned earlier.Fans of The Conjuring films should be pleased with The Dawn, and anyone who enjoys a dark mystery where good and evil rage inside of someone will also find plenty to like. The film touches on PTSD, living with the sins of the father, and the sincere struggles of keeping faith with a delicate and thoughtful approach. And when he stuff hits the fan, Slagle puts the pedal to the metal into possession territory with the ferociously good Devanny Pinn.
