Paweł Pawlikowski directs Natalie Press, Emily Blunt and Paddy Considine in this British coming-of-age drama where two mismatched girls start an obsessive friendship over the summer holiday.
Hazy, eerie, nudie. A motorbike with no engine from the maggot farm, a pub turned born again Christian cult, giggling at the new massive crucifix being erected on the hill. Goldfrapp on the soundtrack. Emily Blunt’s outstanding movie debut as the duplicitous posh girl. Haunts with a very relaxed intensity.
