'Hopkins has a singularity of style worth watching and the courage not to flinch in putting it on screen.' (Nigel Andrews, Financial Times) This widely-praised first-time director renders the beauty of the Cotswolds in stark cinematic contrast to the ugliness of his protagonists' lives, drawing more than one comparison with the poetic realism of Bruno Dumont.
