Movie Info

Peter and Chloe, a young married couple from New York, decide on impulse to take a belated honeymoon on-board a research vessel en route to the icy wastes of Antarctica. Not long into the journey, Chloe begins to feel neglected and betrayed by Peter, who is focused on gathering information for an article he plans to publish on their return about the work of one of their fellow passengers, the whale biologist Roger Payne. After an unforgivable betrayal of trust by Peter, Chloe turns their fledgling marriage upside down by moving into her own room and staking out her independence onboard the ship. Drawing attention to the poles within each of us, the impressionistic story oscillates between the super-confined interiors of the ship and the vast open spaces of Antarctica. In the end, it's not until Chloe and Peter are lost - perhaps literally, perhaps metaphorically - in the Antarctic ice that they discover how essential one is to the other.

Critic Reviews for Red Knot

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4)

Stage director Scott Cohen, here making his debut as a feature filmmaker, places far too much faith in the ability of his actors to elicit and sustain audience interest while improvising their way through the tissue-thin narrative he has provided them.

It's no surprise that first-time director Scott Cohen is a nature photographer by trade: he's made one of the most gorgeous movies you'll see this year.

Not trusting his film's paranoid atmosphere to be sufficient, Mr. Cohen clumsily inscribes his influences.

Red Knot exhibits such spot-on, heartbreaking honesty about behaviors that tear many couples apart ... that it's easy to forgive Cohen his metaphorical excesses.

This short story of a film moves in a meditative manner that recalls art house monoliths.

Quietly powerful.
