We all have memories from the past that we would rather be left there. How would you feel if someone decided to awaken them?
DR Hood's unsettling debut feature boasts breakout performances by Benedict Cumberbatch (pre-'Sherlock'), Claire Foy ('The Crown') and Shaun Evans ('Endeavour').
A young married couple move back to the husband's childhood village in order to start a family. But the arrival of his brother ignites a series of conflicts that lay bare the uneasy foundations upon which the relationship was built. Filmed entirely in and around the Fens, DR Hood's understated drama draws on the surrounding countryside as a metaphor for the unseen dangers that lie dormant in the couple's new home. The music and subtle set design – hinting at the untamed nature of the environment – add to the sense of unease that gradually builds.
