“Stunning film.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eLincolnshire landscape is a powerful character in the plot a la Hardy. The violence including sexual violence is brutal, shocking and doesnu0026#39;t let you turn away – but necessarily so to increase empathy with victim. Wide angle lense shots makes it all the more powerful. Music superb and all the more so as little dialogue. Best feature seen in ages, including mainstream. Perfect length too at 1 24.”
