  • Summary: Set against the staid bedrooms of late 1950s rural England, this is a feverish drama of passion, taboos and betrayal with a macabre psychological twist. The story follows the sensuous Eva (Morton) who breaks all the rules after her own heart is broken. (Fox Searchlight)
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 7 out of 13
  2. Negative: 1 out of 13
  1. Let loose in a plot that's surprisingly modern about sex and relationships, Morton gives Eva's torn longings an immediacy that transcends a lot of damp, 1950s rusticated preciousness.
  2. A beautifully articulated and acutely perceptive work with impeccable, carefully shaded performances.
  3. Reviewed by: Laura Shin

    An engrossing, superbly acted film that will haunt the viewer's thoughts long after the film is over.
  4. 70
    Along with Sheryl Lee, Morton is probably the best actress to have emerged in this decade.
  5. 60
    (A) languorous, mud-spattered psychological tale.
  6. Sincere acting lends the film a measure of dramatic dignity.
  7. 23
    An aimless, pointless dawdle.
