True Things (2021)

Harry Wootliff directs Ruth Wilson, Tom Burke and Hayley Squires in this British drama where a depressed Job Centre worker’s life goes off the rails once she starts fucking one of her users.

Not as erotic as I’d hoped for. Quite miserable and often too vague. There’s every chance this is more grim fantasy, even more so than say Repulsion, Saint Maud, Censor, etc. And this never goes flat-out horror but it is a tale told in much the same mode. Wilson and Burke are indisputably captivating screen presences and they save this from being a complete drone.
