Damian Lewis might decide to let this iffy British drama slip off his CV.
[An] overwrought period drama, which doesn't want for notable names but does cry out for a script rejig.
Everything about The Silent Storm suggests a screenplay was written entirely IN CAPITAL LETTERS. No "r" goes unrolled, no piece of furniture is unpounded.
[An] over-wrought melodrama which sinks like a failed flan in the middle.
The scenery is the only respite from the all-thumbs filmmaking that features overwrought music, ghastly fade-outs and even a psychotropic interlude.
Writer-director Corinna McFarlane counterposes Bergmanesque interiors with gaping exteriors, while Alastair Caplin's eerie, evocative score cranks up the searing, brooding mood.
The high winds of hamminess roar through the rafters in Corinna McFarlane's The Silent Storm.
While the Scottish landscape has never looked more enticing, sadly, majestic mountains and sweeping seascapes cannot plaster over the uncomfortable cracks in McFarlane's feature debut.
This is a dour three-hander, set on a remote Scottish island in the 1940s.
Aside from striking natural beauty there's little to recommend ...
The good intentions are palpable, but sadly the results are rather turgid and the overblown choral score only makes matters worse.
