I just saw a pretty little UK drama, in the noir and Gothic style.
The photography and score are awesome. The tale of a petty bank robber who tries to escape from the city where he knows he can be hunted by the police. So he goes to the country, to his uncle's farm, near the coast, where he works in a garage, repairing cars. But he keeps stealing, his own uncle, whose wife surprises our lead taking some money away. So they struggle and the young woman (SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS) accidentally kills the young. He dies right in the middle of the film, big surprise, as Janet Leigh in PSYCHO, under the shower.
And his uncle's wife has to go on with her own guilt following her, as an obsession all along the feature. She and the uncle bury the body and the film goes on. Henry King could have make such a film, with Christianity influences.
The ending is unfortunately predictable.
Not a bad drama, very well made.
