D.R. Hood's intriguing, well-acted debut draws shifting lines of conflict ... before losing steam in the third act.
For her debut feature, British film-maker Dictynna Hood has created a brooding drama of rural disquiet and sexual tension.
Wreckers blends spells of sheer, watching-paint-dry tedium with sparkier inter-sibling stuff and the odd bout of rural rumpy-pumpy.
In a year already stacked with accomplished British debuts, DR Hood's smart, engrossing and well-acted Wreckers deserves to be more than a footnote.
The structure rambles. The plot sometimes bewitches, sometimes bemuses. The cast works valiantly to keep us caring.
A low-key affair but an interesting take on social realism despite its flaws.
Impressively directed and superbly written, this is an emotionally engaging, powerfully tense British drama with a trio of terrific performances from all three leads.
