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.

It's a beautifully crafted, moodily evocative film that's missing just one spark of true inspiration.

Wilson and Stanley are both excellent performers and they are the mainstays of a valuable piece of work, but I felt the ending was contrived and a bit grandiloquent.

There's scarcely room here for improvement at the level of craft or performance; in particular, it's gratifying to see leading lady Ruth Wilson headlining a big-screen vehicle worthy of her flinty brilliance.
