Durkin's Nest: Social Climbing Hasn't Change Much
26 September 2020 | by babyjaguarSee all my reviews

Durkin's The Nest tries to recreate an economic portrait of the late 80s, via an US family living in London. Jude Law this cast, as the English father of American children. But the strength of the film is Carrie Coon playing Law's wife. Many have said this feature is study of character.

Coon's performance helps the film's often pretensions of depicting classism. Her appearances are strong with emotional wealth, look out for the horse sequences. The other cast members were not as strong, even the film's production worked hard to recreate London in the late 80s. It's equipped with pop culture reference to Britian and UK then musical trends.

Beyond there's a mist of emtpiness, here is where the film offers some strength, ironically when it was not intended. Other times when it's intended, it comes off very superficial. But as a contemporary look into white middle class, it's definitely a good study.

Truth of the matter is that this film maybe had been more stronger if it was set in the present time, with the pressure of social status on platforms would have strengthen Jude Law performance, luckily Coon was able to translate the film's emotions.

The shots of a decaying mansion were actually done well to show the process of the family's disfunction.
