tight family drama
29 March 2012 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

Just saw this on Artificial Eye DVD. Well acted and tightly written, this movie is strangely simple and plain - and captivating. It had some unnecessary character-standing-and-staring- sequences, but overall the rhythm was good. It seemed realistic and there was some real suspense too. It's also contemporary story in which young professional couple moves to the country side for a hope of a simpler lifestyle.

Claire Foy is amazingly sweet in this, very fragile and very beautiful. Benedict Cumberbatch is a believable troubled teacher and Shaun Evans sympathetic as the little brother. Liked the overall cast.

Good indie movie.
