The Bridge Partner by Gabriel Olson (2015) (USA) (14m)

The Bridge Partner tells the tale of the rather meek Mattie and her glamorous new bridge partner, Olivia, who threatens to kill Mattie in an incongruous whisper soon after their first meeting. Mattie is understandably perturbed. Was it a joke? Should she tell others? Confront Olivia? Is Olivia really planning to kill Mattie simply because she knows Mattie will put up no defence? The Bridge Partner has an understated Hitchcockian feel to it, is beautifully shot and the acting is wonderful.

When the elderly gentleman gets it to his remote coastal house, he quickly gets to work on it. However, it soon becomes apparent that there is a reason why the box had no picture on it.
