All Critics (33) | Top Critics (4)

A superbly shot and piercingly acted realist tragedy, like a really disturbing folk horror movie with the horror amputated, so that only the folk remains.

May 11, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

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

May 8, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

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.

The surrounding landscape is flat, sodden, muddy and overcast and somehow menacing, and the drama is correspondingly low key...Country life is treated with respect in the film.

It shouldn't go unnoticed just how accomplished an achievement it is for its debut director Hope Dickson Leach in pulling off such a tricky pictorial and dramatic scenario.
