Storyline

A tale of obsession and deception, and the struggle for love and faith in a world where both seem impossible. The film charts the emotional and physical hothouse effects that bloom one summer for two young women: Mona, behind a spiky exterior, hides an untapped intelligence and a yearning for something beyond the emptiness of her daily life; Tamsin is well-educated, spoiled and cynical. Complete opposites, each is wary of the other's differences when they first meet, but this coolness soon melts into mutual fascination, amusement and attraction. Adding volatility is Mona's older brother Phil, who has renounced his criminal past for religious fervor - which he tries to impose upon his sister. Mona, however, is experiencing her own rapture. "We must never be parted," Tamsin intones to Mona but can Mona completely trust her? Written by Focus Features

Trivia

Tamsin has clearly decided to make Édith Piaf's life even more dramatic than it was. Marcel Cerdan, the boxer, wasn't Piaf's husband. He was her lover, and married, but nonetheless the love of her life. He died in a plane crash and she never recovered from his death. She never killed anyone, let alone with a fork. See more »

Quotes

Tamsin: If you leave me, I'll kill you.
Mona: If you leave me, I'll kill you... and then I'll kill myself.

want more danger
18 July 2016 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Mona (Natalie Press) is hurt after getting dumped. Her brother Phil (Paddy Considine) is her only family. He is a reformed criminal and a born-again Christian. He runs his congregation out of his pub. Mona befriends rich girl Tamsin (Emily Blunt) who is haunted by her sister Sadie who died from anorexia. The two girls' friendship grows into a sexual relationship. Tamsin is furious at her father and his secretary who is cheating with him. Phil leads his congregation to plant a wooden cross on top of the hill. Tamsin starts flirting with him.

These are three terrific young actors on the rise. This feels more like a bright breezy lesbian romance at first. It turns into something different but it never gets dark enough. The Tamsin character needs more chaos. It would help if they do something more dangerous. It's a movie of a manipulative female but the manipulations are more like emotional game playing.
