Conclusion: 3/5
A really unusual film. Adapted from a short novel by Graham Swift. I think Josh O’Connor is brilliant not just in this but in general. I do think that this is a film that if you watch it a second time round it is a film that you would enjoy more than having just watched it once. The one thing that I was quite shocked about and was not expecting was the amount of nudity throughout the film. This film has themes of doubt, grief, remembrance and rebirth.
