★★★★½ "Jude Law shines in this bleak, blackly funny and bluntly theatrical film." "Recommended" - Stuff.co.nz.
Rory (Jude Law), an ambitious entrepreneur and former commodities broker, persuades his American wife, Allison (Carrie Coon), and their children to leave the comforts of suburban America and return to his native England during the 1980s. Sensing opportunity, Rory rejoins his former firm and leases a centuries-old country manor, with grounds for Allison’s horses and plans to build a stable. But the family buckles beneath an unaffordable lifestyle and increasing isolation as they head toward a seemingly inevitable breakdown.
Driven by superb performances and a masterfully crafted aesthetic unease, Sean Durkin’s second feature contemplates the corrosive value system of the 1980s and its human toll, as it spreads like a sickness nobody realized was there.
Starring Jude Law (Sherlock Holmes 1/2/3, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Hugo), Carrie Coon, Charlie Shotwell, Oona Roche, and Adeel Akhtar.
