26 October 2013 | by (Saffron Walden, UK) – See all my reviews

Dictynna Hood's film 'Wreckers' tells the story of a seemingly happy marriage put under stress when the husband's rather intense brother pays a visit. The strange character of the visitor turns out to be rooted in a dark family past and the deeply ambiguous nature of the relationship of the siblings both to each other, and to the place where they grew up. The film captures the awkwardness of human interaction well, but struggles a bit on motivations: the inside of the husband's mind remains closed to us, and a pair of unlikely sexual encounters each just happen. Perhaps telling the tale from the perspective of the relatively normal wife is the error here, but although the subject material is highly emotive, I struggled to connect with the story at an emotional level.
