Director: Kevin Nash
Running Time: 89′
A family drama of powerful intensity, Kevin Nash’s debut feature takes its cue from the Mike Leigh playbook. A young American woman arrives in England seeking to reconnect with her father’s family, only to find them peculiarly reticent about her arrival. Delving deeper, she slowly uncovers a web of trauma, deceit and repressed memory attached to her father’s legacy. Brimming with excellent performances and powerful scenes of dramatic revelation, Nash’s control of a drama predominantly set in one house is impressive, especially given that the performances here are largely improvised.
