Beasts Of The Southern Wild meets Neds in first-time director Paul Wright’s visually striking mix of poetic fable and social-realist drama.
Set in a remote Scottish village, it centres on Aaron (George MacKay), the sole survivor of a fishing boat tragedy that claimed five lives, including his brother.
Struggling with grief and why he was spared, Aaron begins to unravel – much to the horror of his long-suffering ma (Red Road’s Kate Dickie).
MacKay is marvellous, delivering lines with a Lear-like intensity, in what becomes a fascinating meditation on myth and madness.
