  • 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)

  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. Reviewed by: Laura Shin

    An engrossing, superbly acted film that will haunt the viewer's thoughts long after the film is over.
  3. A beautifully articulated and acutely perceptive work with impeccable, carefully shaded performances.
  4. 70
    A film whose story movingly outfoxes any number of shopworn expectations on its way to a singular, heart-rending outcome.
  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.
