"Bridgend" follows Sara and her dad, Dave as they arrive in a small village in Bridgend County. The village is haunted by suicides amongst its young inhabitants, and Sara falls dangerously in love with one of the teenagers, Jamie while Dave as the town's new policeman tries to stop the mysterious chain of suicides.

It is entirely shot on location ...

I really liked this film.
19 October 2018 | by mumfordi12See all my reviews

Such an intense movie with so much hard, darkness and yet it's beautiful in a way that is hard to describe. This movie got under my skin. It is highly recommended.
