A moving, North of England-set portrait of marginalized working-class cultures and the resilience of damaged children.

The rugged emotional territory (and the Yorkshire accents) prove heavy-going in an uncompromising film that elicits a lot more admiration than enjoyment.

However, despite the potential in Barnard's thematic setup and Wilson's fine performance, Dark River ultimately amounts to less than the sum of its parts.
