Shrewdly structured psychological British drama starring Tom Hughes and Ruta Gedmintas as a well-to-do young couple whose comfortable life is disrupted when a troubled teenage girl (Tasha Connor) becomes part of their ordered life. It is a tense and cleverly off-kilter drama, well performed and astutely thought-provoking. It makes great use of its Yorkshire locations, creating a tense and memorably intriguing atmosphere.
Sparks fly after Ali and Ava meet through their shared affection for Sofia, the child of Ali’s tenants whom Ava teaches. Ali finds comfort in Ava’s warmth and kindness while Ava finds Ali’s complexity and humour irresistible. As the pair begin to form a deep connection they have to find a way to keep their newfound passion from being overshadowed by the stresses and struggles of their separate lives and histories.
