It is a quietly brilliant work that balances the conflicts of three women, and the trio of actresses playing them give stunning performances.
Blood proves thicker than (holy) water in writer-director Daniel Kokotajlo's debut Apostasy, one of the year's strongest British films.
"Apostasy" is rare in its visceral and philosophical intensity.
An interesting story that never finds its path, Apostasy is confused, long-winded and lacking any real direction.
Treads through fraught territory with both authenticity and a no-holds-barred understanding of the complexities of the situation.
The proselytising is measured not in rally cries but in quiet, introspective moments.
A remarkable and authentic mediation on religion, belief, family and loss.
It's a potent story of individuals and it understands the fear any of us might feel if our place in a family or a community was threatened.
While undeniably slow and bleakly awkward, [Apostasy] is also as interesting as it is disturbing.
It avoids melodrama at all costs and thus highlights the issues around what it takes to be an ardent follower of any faith, something which proves extra fascinating to non-believers.
Just as impressive is the way writer-director Kokotajlo, here making his feature debut, handles a difficult story in such a low-key, but intensely moving, way.
The director's sonic austerity and sensual attention to people, moorland vistas and rustling canopies of leaves conjures a rich world around the Whitlings.
