Needs More Work......
on 2 October 2015
A waste of 81 minutes of your time. Looks and sounds like a media studies class group effort and a huge waste of the acting talents deployed - who all do a lot with the rubbish script they have to fumble through and rise above. Sound and focus pull is abysmal, and there is neither plot nor character development. What is most frustrating is that there is the germ of something good there and it is wasted; big personal and emotional issues are raised and then backed away from, depth is started then abandoned as if a bit too scary to touch, Shame.
Cumberbatch is mesmerising in anything he does, and this is worth a viewing, but no more. On the other hand, if you feel lingering unfocussed shots of cobwebs in church windows, washing flapping on lines and assymettrical views of fields are all Deeply Meaningful, then this is a film for you. I know this countryside and this landscape, and this film just does not work.Sorry.
