Storyline

A family drama of powerful intensity, Kevin Nash's debut feature takes its cue from the Mike Leigh playbook. A young American woman arrives in England seeking to reconnect with her father's family, only to find them peculiarly reticent about her arrival. Delving deeper, she slowly uncovers a web of trauma, deceit and repressed memory attached to her father's legacy. Brimming with excellent performances and powerful scenes of dramatic revelation, Nash's control of a drama predominantly set in one house is impressive, especially given that the performances here are largely improvised. Written by East End Film Festival

One of the best psychological drams I've seen in a decade.
5 December 2018 | by jackgm-99013See all my reviews

The setting is authentic and neatly expresses the differences both between the UK and USA, and between two generations.

The characters are very believable; human, flawed and vulnerable.

The acting is at the very least good and becomes excellent as the story unfolds.

The story structure is brillant. It tells you just enough to think you know what is about to happen but dreading you might be right. The drama is griping. The dialogue is perfect.

Waking David is story telling at it best. It will leave you pondering two of the greatest questions of today's society. Is it right to keep secrets? Should we judge when we don't know the facts.
