Synopsis:
Following the death of her father, Alice (Ruth Wilson) returns home for the first time in 15 years, to claim the tenancy of the family farm she believes is rightfully hers. Once there, she encounters her older brother Joe (Mark Stanley), a man she barely recognises, worn down by years of struggling to keep the farm going whilst caring for their sick father (Sean Bean). Joe is thrown by Alice's sudden arrival, angered by her claim and finds her presence increasingly difficult to deal with.
Battling to regain control in a fraught situation, Alice must confront traumatic memories and family betrayals to find a way to restore the farm and salvage the bond with her brother before both are irrevocably lost.

Dark gloomy story. - Dark River review by KR

Spoiler Alert
11/10/2018

This is a film about sexual abuse and the dreadful implications that can arise. No laughs then but an effective indictment of one the worse crimes imaginable. Good acting from the two principals and the film does end with a glimmer of hope.

Depressing - Dark River review by MR

Spoiler Alert
09/11/2018

Nice scenery, but a sombre story with nothing to lighten it. Give this a wide berth if you’re feeling down.

Grey and bland rather than dark . - Dark River review by LM

Spoiler Alert
11/12/2018

Rather dull and uninspiring and with no tension . Grey scenery and a grey movie . I was quickly bored by this and had no sympathy with the characters who nobody really could care about what happens to them
