After the death of her father, Alice (Wilson) returns to her family farm for the first time in 15 years, with the intention of taking over the failing business. Her alcoholic older brother Joe (Stanley) has other ideas though, and Alice’s return conjures up the family’s dark and dysfunctional past. Writer-director Clio Barnard’s new film incorporates gothic landscapes and stunning performances, and received its European premiere at the BFI London Film Festival 2017.
