Plot Summary

A married couple move back to their childhood village to start a family but a surprise visit from the husband's brother ignites sibling rivalry and exposes the lies embedded in the couple's relationship. WRECKERS is an evocative, beautifully shot debut from Director D.R. Hood that examines the fragile relationship between truth, intimacy and betrayal. Features stand out performances from some of the best British acting talent working today including Benedict Cumberbatch (War Horse, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, and BBC's Sherlock), Claire Foy (BBC's Little Dorrit and Channel 4's The Promise) and Shaun Evans (Endeavour, The Take).

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: D.R. Hood's intriguing, well-acted debut draws shifting lines of conflict ... before losing steam in the third act. – Guy Lodge, Variety, Mar 31, 2012

Fresh: For her debut feature, British film-maker Dictynna Hood has created a brooding drama of rural disquiet and sexual tension. – Peter Bradshaw, Guardian, Dec 15, 2011

Fresh: In a year already stacked with accomplished British debuts, DR Hood's smart, engrossing and well-acted Wreckers deserves to be more than a footnote. – Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph (UK), Dec 15, 2011

Fresh: The structure rambles. The plot sometimes bewitches, sometimes bemuses. The cast works valiantly to keep us caring. – Nigel Andrews, Financial Times, Dec 15, 2011

Not a romance

For some strange reason this movie is categorized as a romance, but it definitely is not a romance. The dialogue is barely audible with the actors mumbling quite a bit; it does not have captions. The story follows the wife's journey for the most part and her motivations are very difficult to discern; this could make for an interesting plot point, but comes across instead as nonsensical. For example, there is a scene in which she engages romantically with her husband's brother. Why? She's rebuffed him previously. She seems to be repulsed by the antics of another adulterous couple. Also, my husband and I weren't 100% sure she wasn't sexually assaulted. Then her husband comes home and they hug and have tea. I don't mind ambiguity or an exploration into hidden motives, but it has to be earned. And I don't think this movie earned it. But it did propose a very interesting question: how well do we really know anyone? How well do we know our spouses, siblings, parents or even ourselves?

Bizzare

Disjointed. Half way through you will be asking "what???"....very strange....

Wreckers

The only thing that saves this wreck of a film from self destructing is the acting of the three main characters. However, there are times when the dialogue is almost mumbled. A very strange storyline that often makes no sense.
