Wreckers blends spells of sheer, watching-paint-dry tedium with sparkier inter-sibling stuff and the odd bout of rural rumpy-pumpy.
| Original Score: 2/5
D.R. Hood's intriguing, well-acted debut draws shifting lines of conflict ... before losing steam in the third act.
A low-key affair but an interesting take on social realism despite its flaws.
| Original Score: 3/5
The structure rambles. The plot sometimes bewitches, sometimes bemuses. The cast works valiantly to keep us caring.
[A] low-key, high-tension British indie drama...
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.
Impressively directed and superbly written, this is an emotionally engaging, powerfully tense British drama with a trio of terrific performances from all three leads.
| Original Score: 4/5
It's a promising film.
While the drama occasionally overheats, strong turns from the two leads keep us invested in the characters.
For her debut feature, British film-maker Dictynna Hood has created a brooding drama of rural disquiet and sexual tension.
