The dark drama tells what happens when an apparently happy suburban family in Texas adopts a deaf mute teenager called Dot. People begin telling her their darkest secrets. Cuthbert plays Nina, the daughter in Dot's new family.
She's a popular cheerleader. But she's being abused by her father.
Cuthbert and the film's director Jamie Babbit told Minnesota Public Radio's Euan Kerr that making the film was tough. Cuthbert said she was drawn to how Nina deals with her troubles.
