Film details

Ruth Wilson excels in Clio Barnard’s atmospheric and layered drama about the old wounds and bitter new grievances that come to light when a woman returns home to settle the tenancy of her family’s Yorkshire farm. Lingering in the background is the sexual trauma she suffered at the hands of her abusive father. Barnard has an acute sense of place and character and this is an assured and atmospheric work that also continues the recent renaissance of British films dealing with rural living.
