The kind of movie that mistakes rumbling storm clouds and restless sheep for plot development.

Even in the swelling canon of British rural miserabilism, this unrelentingly intense psychodrama burrows beneath the skin.

"Dark River" is a forgettable title for a movie that's anything but.

With strong performances throughout, Dark River is only let down by it's ending, which rounds off an otherwise achingly beautiful film.

We are rewarded with sophisticated direction from one of the greatest (if not the greatest) living British filmmakers. Dark River is a tense two-hander that builds tension to the breaking point.

It is great to see Wilson, after years of acclaimed work on stage and TV (notably in Luther and The Affair), show off her blazing talent on the big screen as well.
