  • Featuring an exciting climax in which Mia, who has gone looking for the missing Fin, plays a vitally important role, the film marks an impressive debut for its writer/director [Ruth Platt].

  • As fascinating as it is to have all of these interesting concepts and philosophies explored so thoroughly in a genre movie, it can sometimes feel like sensory overload when we're also meant to stomach watching teenagers get impaled over and over.

  • The Lesson is an impressive debut feature for Ruth Platt, featuring solid performances and one or two cringe-inducing moments of violence.

  • From the exploration of totalitarianism in Orwell, to a gauged look at contemporary Britain, this is evidently a film from the mind of an educated individual.

  • Debt-related stress has seldom seemed so darned entertaining.
