Movie Info

Josh Appignanesi's dark drama Song of Songs opens with Ruth (Nathalie Press), a young Orthodox Jewish woman, returning home to the London suburb of Hendon after a long stay in Israel, to tend to her dying mother (Julia Swift). Though initially ultra devout and behaviorally guarded, Ruth harbors a dark and disturbing past that includes erogenous interaction with her brother David (Joel Chalfen). It isn't long before the siblings' paths intersect, and what begins suggestively - with the two reading sensual passages from the Song of Solomon to one another in Hebrew and English - soon turns to full-blown eroticism. In time, David's openly hedonistic attitudes and Ruth's long-latent urges re-open the door to a renewed incestuous affair. Leon Lissek and Felicite du Jeu co-star; Appignanesi and Jay Basu co-authored the script. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
