Beautiful photography, excellent scenery, complex character development with a perfect musical score fitting the storytelling, this was absolutely fantastic. A great story with unbelievable twists.

It's only her second movie and I can already see a great and promising career as a Director/Actress/Writer.

I'm already waiting for Amy Hesketh's next masterpiece.
