  • Melancholy characters shine in this powerful portrait of island life.

    March 25, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • It's a striking piece, and director of photography Yoliswa von Dallwitz evocatively captures the exposed, untamed island landscape.

    Guardian
    Top Critic
  • Directed by Scott Graham, the story has a timeless quality, the spiritual and the bucolic intersecting with unnatural desires fed by the proximity of the community.

    March 24, 2016 | Rating: 4/5

    Kate Muir

    Times (UK)
    Top Critic
  • Iona is a lyrical, reflective drama that owes an obvious debt to the film-making of Andrei Tarkovsky and Carl Dreyer.

    March 24, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • There's something unconvincing about the whole enterprise.

    March 21, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

    Dave Calhoun

    Time Out
    Top Critic
  • The film's pace is slow and quiet, like the island. Dialogue is sparse - and its sparseness powerfully implies that there is much that still cannot be said even after the passing of time.
