It is involved with animal cruelty. I don’t know if it’s real or not. It’s too violent on the animals. Sad movie also. People who experienced sexual abuse need to learn to face it than struggle and stay with it. Painful.

A very bleak present life cannot be even slightly relieved until the past has been confronted and somewhat resolved. Even then, there is only hope that the present will be a little satisfying.

A film that I wanted to watch because it starred Ruth Wilson but wish to forget afterwards. An utterly joyless bleak drama on a dark familial past in a rural isolated Yorkshire farm. But unlike other similar films, it breaks no new ground other than a few pointers on the hardship in running a farm with next to no resource.

#metoo! This film is difficult to watch as it documents the lasting torment of incest. It vividly demonstrates the difficulty of survivors to separate memories and the present and to mitigate "survivor guilt". It evokes both pain and hope. Kristi & Abby Tabby

Be warned: Anytime a movie has so many tributes on the DVD box, it usually fails. Not saying this was a total waste but hardly 'One of the standout British films this year'.
If you don't see this film, you will survive.

Sparse dialogue. Only interesting line is off the main topic but on sheep farming:

It's shepherd's needle. You don't see it very often. Not round here, anyway. When it comes through its seed pods, they look like a needle. When you cut it for silage, all you end up doing is... killing everything that's under it. In one acre of hay meadow... you've got 400 million insects. 600 million mites. Two million spiders. Burnet moths. Butterflies, bees. Voles, shrews. Yeah, yeah...

I can clip flock, cut bale and wrap silage.

We gotta do summat!

Can you call knacker man?

Dover. To pick up spuds. I used to get over to Ireland. On wagons, like. Yeah, it were great. Ferry and that. Most of the time, just been grafting here, you know what it's like.
