Movie Info

Adam has lived a rootless existence since his family's farm was destroyed by the Foot & Mouth epidemic of 2001. His life imploded and he abandoned his family after a single devastating incident. He has spent the years since on the nomadic fringes of British society, cycling through transitory jobs and transitory relationships, adrift from his family and past. When his younger brother Aiden reaches out to him to announce the birth of his first child-Adam is about to become an uncle-there is an ultimatum attached: come home now, or never come home again. Adam embarks on a journey home that is at once tortured and exhilarating, a panoramic tour through the broken and beautiful margins of Britain. As eruptions from his secret past begin to emerge, Adam struggles to break free from an exile that must now end before it swallows him for good.'

  • A haunting and masterly portrait of the bleeding edges of so-called Broken Britain.

  • For all the embedded detail about seaside towns and dingy provincial discos, it often doesn't feel like a British film, and that's meant to be a compliment.

  • The sensitive, inquiring photography is by far this British indie's strongest selling point.

  • Blood Cells is a bleak and depressing expedition that compels the viewer to observe Adam's melancholy existence. This film allows you to experience the world through the eyes of a person blinded by depression.

    Aug 17, 2015 | Rating: 7.5/10 | Full Review…
  • It's a truly accomplished study of his demise, a sad portrait of his life.

    Aug 10, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • An impressively dour and dense new British drama, Blood Cells is a strikingly dark drama given heart and soul thanks to Barry Ward's suitably intense lead performance.
