2017, UK, 107 min

A nominee for the Platform prize at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival, this debut film by Michael Pearce is a riveting, slow-burning thriller about the limits of love and the darkness within us. Yearning to escape from her stifling home life, Moll (Jessie Buckley), the black sheep of an upper-crust family on the isle of Jersey, impulsively moves in with Pascal (Johnny Flynn), a rugged hunter with a mysterious past. When a local girl goes missing following a string of murders, Moll must decide what to trust: her own instincts, or the mysterious man with whom she has made a home.

Reviews

Four stars. A smartly layered thriller...haunting drama.
-The Guardian
Jessie Buckley gives what can only be called a breakout performance as Moll. She is thrillingly alive, Buckley is riveting. You can't look away.
