Lewes Film ClubChristian returns to his home town to attend his fatherís wedding to a much younger woman. Thereís icy, unresolved tension between him and his father and family skeletons start to be unpicked with elegant, brooding subtlety building to a finale with an implosive emotional charge. Based on a radical adaptation of Ibsenís The Wild Duck this is a beautifully measured drama with a keenly observed sense of small town sensibilities by Simon Stone, the wunderkind of Australian theatre directing his first feature film.
