British writer/director Joanna Hogg follows her debut Unrelated with another insightful, impressively acted study of upper-middle-class family friction.
Patricia (Kate Fahy) and her two adult children, Cynthia and Edward (Tom Hiddleston, Lydia Leonard) rent a secluded cottage, where tensions brew as they await the father’s arrival.
In long, static takes, Hogg calmly exposes the gulf between polite facades and repressed resentments.
The final act fizzles, but then nothing could top the funny/cringey restaurant scene where Lydia loses it over the under-cooking of her guinea fowl.
