Story


Joseph (Peter Mullan), a tormented, self-destructive man plagued by violence, finds hope of redemption in Hannah (Olivia Colman), a Christian charity-shop worker he meets one day while fleeing an altercation. Initially derisive of her faith and presumed idyllic existence, Joseph nonetheless returns to the shop and soon realizes that Hannah's life is anything but placid. As a relationship develops, they come to understand the deep pain in each other's lives.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..a warning flag for queasy viewers that things won't be pretty here, but those who stay just a bit longer come to see his immediate regret over the matter..”
by William Goss [Film.com]
“..the characters are trapped, suffocated, pushed through a story that gives them very little room or time to figure themselves out, and that finally turns their feelings into the wan stuff of fable..”
by A.O. Scott [New York Times]
“..brutal, indeed..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]
