Critic Reviews for Iona
There's something unconvincing about the whole enterprise.
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.
A spiritual search for forgiveness in an increasingly secular world ends up a disjointed and frustratingly incoherent film.
Iona has also been shorn of at least 25 minutes since it fi rst saw the light of day last year - and I'm not convinced it is better for it.
