Novice director Claire McCarthy (only her 2nd full length feature film) did an outstanding job behind the camera, but not so well in directing her cast. Her editing could've been much better as well. The almost 2 hour length needed trimming down. Semi Chellas' writing was terrible with long dragged out scenes, some too short, poor pacing, and a convoluted plot. On the plus side, great sets, visuals and cinematography, and an outstanding score by Steven Price. This film missed the potential it had IMO. It's a 7/10 from me
