Critic Reviews for Iona
There's something unconvincing about the whole enterprise.
Beautiful, savage and beguiling describes both the island and the central protagonist (stunning performance by Ruth Negga) of this film by writer/director Scott Graham.
It's beautiful and there are enough small moments in Iona that compensate for the lack of a cohesive, especially interesting, narrative.
Led by the wonderfully watchable Negga, the ensemble acting is stunningly good in a dark film that takes it time in revealing its themes -- guilt, faith, sin, forgiveness.
Scott Graham's confident drama features a strong central performance and a believably bleak sense of place, but it's almost comically taciturn in places, its secrets unravelling slowly amid an atmosphere of quiet trauma.
