Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: A haunting and masterly portrait of the bleeding edges of so-called Broken Britain. – Kevin Maher, Times (UK), Jun 25, 2015

Fresh: For all the embedded detail about seaside towns and dingy provincial discos, it often doesn't feel like a British film, and that's meant to be a compliment. – Leslie Felperin, Guardian, Jun 25, 2015

Fresh: The sensitive, inquiring photography is by far this British indie's strongest selling point. – Dave Calhoun, Time Out, Jun 22, 2015

Finding a way toward “home"

Joseph Bull and Luke Seomore have created a surprisingly potent film that follows a seemingly broken man as slowly makes his way "home" after receiving a letter from his estranged brother that if he doesn't return to meet his newly born nephew that he will no longer be welcomed in the lives of his family.

As "Adam" Barry Ward fully establishes himself as an actor of considerable skill and presence. Adam's journey "home" is filmed with an almost surreal-like druken haze. David Procter's cinematography captures Adam and his ever-changing yet ever-familiar surroundings in shades of gray and black.

This is as much as study of the England's Post Mad Cow Crisis and it's impact on the country's long established farming communities, families and individuals as it is a character study of an alcoholic brother trying to find his way home.

A consistent element brought forward by the film is that while Adam is clearly suffering and lost, those who he encounters are seldom cruel or harsh toward him. Even strangers offer him a bit of support. When he does "pass through" or "by" old girlfriends or friends they attempt to help him. The girlfriend to whom he feels the strongest ties is just as lost as he.

This is slow-burn paced film that gradually reveals more of itself as Adam presses on toward his mother, brother, new born nephew and siter-in-law. It is unclear if he will ever find his footing, but the film does offer hope within the framework of the people who form a country rather than the country itself.

A brilliant film that was tragically over-looked at the time of it's release. This is a film not to be missed. Joseph Bull has already established himself as a documentary filmmaker, but here with co-director Luke Seomore -- they have made a near perfect film.
