A dark and violent psychological debut from Nicholas David Lean
I had the pleasure of attending a private screening of Hard Shoulder through a friend.
I wasn't sure what to expect from the director Nicholas David Lean's film debut, but I was very glad I got to watch it.
When the Hard Shoulder starts out you're not sure what to expect, another film about an unhappy family? No. This is after all a psychological thriller. After setting the scene of a unhappy family trying to hold things together, the film gradually builds up the tension and takes a very dark, disturbing and violent turn. Then just when you think you have a grasp of what's going on there is a brilliantly unexpected twist.
There is some great acting turns in the film from the likes of Lucy Drive, and Jamie Foreman. Jamie now better known as Derek Branning from Eastenders.
I'm not sure when this film is out on general release, but if you get the chance, go see it!
