Harry Treadaway, Emma Booth, Ali Craig, Arthur Darvill, Christopher Fulford / Fiction / English
An atmospheric, edgy paean to that one mad love affair we all live to regret…
Nikko (Harry Treadaway) is a charismatic youth with good looks, good mates and a feisty dedication to the highly competitive art of high-end birdwatching. He’s also deeply troubled, and carrying a heavy load of guilt from a recent near-tragedy. When Nikko crosses paths with the gorgeous Stevie (Emma Booth) – seductress, environmental activist, troublemaker – dangerous instincts are roused once more, and the straight-and narrow looks ever less appealing.
#1/ Wednesday 2 June, 2010 / 23:17 GMTI was lucky enough to see this film in preview and it is quirky but grows on you through the atmospherics... worth the watch
#2/ Saturday 19 June, 2010 / 15:59 GMTWell shot movie with great acting and a pretty good storyline. It's just a pity that most stuff coming out of Britain is miserablist.It's kind of like Kes without the gags. Should do quite well in The Audience Awards, but can't see it winning.
