Movie Info

Gemma and Will are shattered when their son dies in an accident. Gemma blames herself and starts to have panic attacks that affect her eyesight--and the audience's point of view. Will, tormented, believes he is hearing his son's voice calling out to him. To escape their grief, Gemma suggests they take up Paul's offer to stay at his Lake District country getaway. Gemma, helped by ex-pharmacist Paul, tries to stop her panic attacks with medication. Will, unable to hear to his son in his bedroom back home, antagonizes Paul and suddenly goes home. Gemma is now reliant on Paul who appears to be developing genuine feelings for her welfare. Love, grief, and the frailty of the human condition are all brought to the fore as Gemma Will and Paul are caught up in a descent into violence, both psychological and ultimately physical.

Due to issues with pacing and control of the narrative, it doesn't quite come together, and the necessary chill isn't properly refrigerated.

The final act stumbles once or twice, but it's engaging, tense, the conclusion is earned and affecting, and [Jasmine] Hyde's superb performance carries it through any wobbles.

Overall, there's a polished quality to it that's relatively rare in British film, and its story unspools in a fluent way that's likely to keep viewers coming back to it over time. It may or may not scare you, but it's a properly effective thriller.

It looks beautiful and it is an effective exploration of guilt, though the thrilling elements of the film distract from the emotional journey.
