Absolutely loved this.
13 April 2019 | by matt-54671See all my reviews

Was lucky enough to watch an early screening of this in Sheffield with writer / cameraman / director Rich Heap present for a Q&A after the film. What a thoroughly absorbing film it is! The Q&A host after the film described the landscape as being one of the major characters in the film and she was not wrong. It makes you want to forget holidaying in sunny Spain and stick to the North York moors! The children act superbly, especially Molly, and Mark Addy obviously shines. We took our kids aged 10 and 12 to watch it. It's a very dark tale, but so refreshing for a film to appeal to the family audience without the usual disneyfication. Would completely recommend it.
