Wreckers

1

A newly married couple move the the countryside but will his brother let them live in peace?

Secrets, lies and sexual tension simmer nicely in D.R. Hood’s momentum-lite, mood-rich drama.

Benedict Cumberbatch and Claire Foy play spouses whose move to the country  is disturbed by hubby’s bro (Shaun Evans),a squaddie with issues.

Hood follows disruptive-outsider formula: seemingly a snake in the family grass, Evans’ Nick merely exposes tensions already bubbling beneath the surface.

Yet what Hood lacks in narrative jolts she compensates for in disquiet, aided by a cast who charge every suspicious look, revenge fuck and outburst with layers of meaning.
