Kendrick, uptight to the point of rage, really lives it, while first-time writer-director Hope Dickson Leach ensures we get the wider picture.

A modestly scaled, superbly crafted drama with a powerful sense of place.

[Leach] gets her hands dirty, bedding down into these difficult, truculent characters and plunging us deep into the chilly loam of her mournful, atmospheric story.

March 29, 2017 | Full Review…

Set on a failing farm in Somerset after the floods, it is a sombre, moving tale of a family in crisis, with a star-making turn by Ellie Kendrick as the daughter trying to hold everything, and everyone, together.

August 23, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The Levelling hits peaks and troughs which make this plucky British indie an arresting, affecting watch.

December 28, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

There is an impressive attention to both the flood-saturated muck and the industrial integrity of the small farm, lending The Levelling a fine sense of space. The film is ultimately a one-track proposition, but keep an eye on Leach.
