A dark and atmospheric story of female friendship tested by deceit, betrayal and a terrifying past. Susan, outwardly confident and Becky, more fragile and shy, both in their late twenties, are inseparable friends. But both women have secrets they have not shared, some recent, some long past and deeply buried. When, on a weekend trip to Dartmoor, they encounter the charismatic Chris, they are led into a web of mind games, sexual deceit and betrayal. As Becky's traumatic involvement in Chris' own damaged past is revealed, a psychological journey swiftly becomes a fight for survival.
We viewed this film through Netflix and, although the photography and scenery in the film is absolutely astounding, overall the movie just does not rise even towards the top. It plods along for quite a long while before the plot becomes at least somewhat apparent. The acting is rather wooden and mostly devoid of realistic personalities and human interaction, but that may be because of the intent to portray a dark, melancholy side of life, which it does that indeed. Since the parental advisory feature on IMDb of this film is locked, viewers should be aware of frequent uses of the F word and a sex scene that is not at all subliminal. Should be rated R.
