Movie Info

Zac is a lonely, highly strung city trader searching the canals of Britain for his weird and wayward younger sister Alice, her boyfriend Toby and their disappearing narrowboat. Wracked with guilt and regret, Zac's sanity starts to unravel as he fights with memories of Alice in the weeks leading up to her disappearance. As he remembers her sweetly burgeoning relationship with the mysterious Toby, however, he begins to wonder if there may in fact be a grander, wilder, much stranger explanation for their disappearance.

  • There's just something a little too smug and obvious about it all.

  • Absorbing, intelligent work.

    November 3, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The script seriously miscalculates that we'll all be interested enough in its protagonist's frazzled detective quest to wait for answers to the film's central mystery.

    November 2, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The end will not come as a surprise as it is the opening scene as well as being the final scene. Does this add anything to the film. No.

    August 21, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Sharpe explores those strange spaces where the comedy of the banal borders the gravity of depression, grief, guilt & death. It is very funny indeed, but as the title suggests, there is plenty of pain and pathos to counterweigh the humour.

    February 16, 2017 | Full Review…
  • In its overall vibe, this British film suggests a deadpan Channel 4 sitcom that has fallen through a dimensional portal and into the strangeness of a Ben Wheatley psychodrama.
