Storyline

Cold centres around two disconnected English brothers who are ostracised in a small village in the west of Ireland. Drawn back together by the unexpected and mysterious death of their father, they are immediately at odds until they find a girl dumped still alive in the moors. What follows is a bizarre turn of events, both beautiful and surreal, as the two brothers search for their own resolutions. At times both a love story and a tragic tale, the story is inspired by a piece in John Steinbeck's East of Eden. Written by Eoin Macken

Emotional, challenging, gripping
6 August 2013 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Two brothers, reunited after the death of their father in a bleak Irish backwater. The film explores their complex relationship and the reasons for Jack's departure and unwelcome return.

The cinematography is stunning, the music sublime, and the plot twists so that you mentally undo all your assumptions on more than one occasion. Parts of the film are uncomfortable to watch, yet you can't tear your eyes away from the screen.

Tom Hopper plays a character so far removed from Merlin's Sir Percival and extracts such a range of emotions from the viewer that it's difficult to believe they're the same person. Eoin Macken plays a feckless Irish drunk. And then so much more. Helen Pearson is absolutely compelling, even if her role is difficult to watch.

Be prepared to be totally absorbed and then haunted by it.
