Earning comparisons with Andrea Arnold and Jane Campion, director Michael Pearce emerged as a striking new voice in British cinema with this smouldering, sexy thriller set on Jersey.

Moll (Jessie Buckley) has always been considered the black sheep of her family, but when she meets rugged, blue-eyed stranger Pascal (Johnny Flynn) it marks the start of a liberating, intoxicating romance. It also coincides with a string of murders and the disappearance of a teenage girl. What does she really know about Pascal, and can either of them escape their lingering reputations for trouble?

‘Grisly and gorgeous in almost equal measure.’ ★★★★ Little White Lies

‘Jessie Buckley goes wild in a Nicolas Roeg-meets-Bergerac crime thriller’ ★★★★ The Telegraph
