Mark Kermode's Film of the Week: "Fairytale meets psycho thriller"

Showing Times

Mark Kermode finds this debut feature richly, satisfyingly opaque:  "Charting a turbulent relationship between a cloistered young woman and the vagabond man who turns her world upside down, [writer/director Michael] Pearce’s increasingly intense psychological thriller deftly overturns expectations as it dances between timeless fable, modern romance and murder mystery. Superb central performances from rising stars Jessie Buckley and Johnny Flynn provide the visceral spark that fires the story – a game of psychological cat and mouse in which desire and danger, innocence and guilt, are intriguingly intertwined."
