  • EU rules. Insurance scams. Infectious diseases. These are all serious topics, yet it's when Leach fools around that The Levelling feels like it has something truly important to say.

  • It's a magnetic performance from Kendrick, at once lost and angry, agonised and tender.

  • 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.

  • Expect Hope Dickson Leach to be snapped up by Hollywood in a heartbeat.

    May 9, 2017 | Rating: 5/5 | 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.
