Excellent drama/thriller. - Beast review by CS

Superbly acted, atmospheric and brooding, this tale of family, community and personal strife grips from early on and builds to a dramatic climax. Very impressive and absolutely worth watching.

Intriguing film - Beast review by HE

Spoiler Alert

I found myself really drawn to the different characters, especially Moll played by Jessie Buckley. Superb acting from all the characters involved. The plot was irresistible and the tension well sustained to the last. You could hear every word spoken and there were no gimmicks to distract. it kept me thinking and absorbed. I will look out for future films from this director.

Tense and intense - Beast review by JW

Spoiler Alert
06/01/2019

100 minutes, no flab, no filler. We enter the life and the mind of a trapped, confused and emotional young woman as she tries to make sense of herself and her surroundings. It's not an easy ride, but one hell of an experience.

The biggest compliment I can give to this superbly well-made film is that despite all the effed up stuff that happens in it, it still seems very real and very believable. Which is scary
