Critic Reviews for Shell
'Shell' never fully comes to life. And while Pirrie is brilliant, at 25, I didn't buy her as a teenager.
A bleak tale but Pirrie is terrific, turning in a performance that is as fragile as her namesake, with Mawle memorable as the dad living in the past.
The deer-skinning scene will have everyone worshipping their supermarket packets more than ever.
With a remarkably vivid sense of life in rural Scotland, this tightly contained drama is an impressive debut for writer-director Graham.
This is a sensitive and intelligent film but so slow-burning that sometimes it seems to stop dead in its tracks.
