Trivia

The entire shoot was on location, the tug and flow, shiftings and rockings of the trawler all too real. A gale-force storm was brewing throughout many of the scenes, the actual announcement by the coast guard in the film is factual and recorded on the day. The trawler herself, a crabber, manned by real-life Cornish fisherman Sam Jago is a real life working vessel and can be seen off the waters of Cawsand, Cornwall on most week days. See more »

Melancholic Thriller
10 September 2008 | by See all my reviews

From the fog drifting off the water to the elegiac score of Patrick O'Hearn, The Wheelhouse rocks you calmly on the very same sea it will drown you in.

Outstanding direction, a soundtrack fit for an epic blockbuster, and understated acting, all plunge you into the mystically casual and intriguing world of filmmaker Sean Garland.

This film tackles taboo in a twisted, yet elegant way and keeps you embroiled in the drama from start to finish.

I wasn't expecting much when I heard of The Wheelhouse at the Denver Film Festival, but was completely blown away and pleasantly surprised by the sentiment, the attention to detail and the POWER of this film.

See it.
