Avail­able: Now on DVD and BD When it comes to movies, it’s hard work putting scares into par­ents. But if this hor­ror fam­ily drama doesn’t give mums and dads the hee­biejee­bies, noth­ing will. A very bleak and of­ten un­nerv­ing piece, it fol­lows a trau­ma­tised mother who is look­ing back over her life and re­la­tion­ship with her dif­fi­cult son af­ter he com­mits an un­speak­able act. She is try­ing des­per­ately to func­tion in the af­ter­math. The heavy­handed di­rec­tion can jolt you out of it at times but, for the most part, this is thor­oughly com­pelling and won­der­fully car­ried by Tilda Swin­ton.
