Annabel Jankel directs Anna Paquin, Holliday Grainger and Gregor Selkirk in this vintage lesbian romance where a single mum in a small Scottish village moves in with the posh doctor with a scandalous secret.
Handsomely shot and handsomely acted. Maybe a little too tasteful. I believe the term for this form of tight jumpers and high waist trouser fluff is Cottagecore. Then in the final moments we take some pretty violent and strange lurches. It isn’t meant to be a horror film or a controversial film but it tools about with some pretty spicy imagery in the tie-off. None of that feels a piece with the first hour. I’m not sure I was satisfied with any of it in-spite of a lot of goodwill towards it.
