Storyline

On the windswept Suffolk mudflats creaks a bird-hide, inside which hovers Roy Tunt, a prematurely aged, mildly obsessive-compulsive birder. With one more sighting - the elusive sociable plover - he will have 'twitched' the entire British List. Tunt has his shortwave radio, packed-lunch and a portrait of his ex-wife Sandra for company. Suddenly, in the midst of a conversation with Sandra's portrait, the hide door blows open and a bedraggled stranger - unshaven, edgy and bloodied introduces himself as Dave John, a fugitive from the storm. After a tense introduction, the two men discover that they have a good deal in common, sharing sandwiches, tea and personal exchanges which are frank, poignant and often funny. As the two men begin to form a close bond news of a police manhunt sets them both on edge driving their fragile relationship to a tragic conclusion. Written by Poisson Rouge Pictures

Excellent thriller!
9 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Hide was well directed and the writing was wonderful. Great plot with a great ending. I recommend you find this movie and add it to your must have list.

If you like dull, boring movies with poor acting then don't get The Hide.

One of my favorite movies I've seen this year. Campbell does an excellent job in his role. Really looking forward to seeing him in another movie.

The Director of Photography captures the scene nicely with different views not normally seen in movies today. A great change of pace.

The location in the U.K. was perfect. It gave the movie a very authentic feel and you actually felt like you could sense the environment around the actors.
