Movie Info

A young woman who was forsaken at birth decides to kill her mother, but finds herself transfixed by the magic of the mysterious island where the woman now resides with her son in this drama based on the novel by Jane Rogers. Nikki Black never knew what it meant to be loved. With no parent to nurture her, she never learned how to love, and became lost in a world of fantasy. Eventually, Nikki determines that the only way to fill the hollowness that consumes her is to find her mother, and kill her. Upon arriving on the secluded Hebridean isle and tracking down the woman, however, Nikki is taken aback to learn that her long-lost brother also has a gift for weaving incredible tales. Meanwhile, Nikki's unwavering urge to kill only grows stronger with each passing day. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

A slow-burning but ultimately devastating look at revenge gone awry, with Press conveying a subtle mix of bolshiness and fragility.

Daily Mirror (UK)

It's good to see Natalie Press - so good in My Summer of Love - back on the screen, but this is a flimsy film.

An intriguing misfire.

Radio Times

Directors Brek Taylor and Elizabeth Mitchell can't quite manage the fantastical imaginings of the two would-be lovers without creating a fey tone that destroys their realism.

London Evening Standard

The quasi-fairytale atmosphere is adeptly handled, and Kathy Li's cinematography imbues proceedings with a chilly beauty.

Stunning to look at and ambitious in its symbolic rendering of the subject.
