Some secrets should remain buried
29 November 2018 | by chong_anSee all my reviews

In 1972, a group of young actors visit farms to find stories to build into a play. Desperate to please his director and get a story in, one gullible actor pushes too hard for "the truth", changing the relationships between the 2 farmers he is staying with.

This is a nice adaptation of the circa 2000 play, but it seems to be an irrelevant historical artifact. The type of family farm depicted is long gone, and the key events start in WW2 England. If I hadn't seen the play, I probably would not have caught this film in its limited (7-screening) run.
