Calm With Horses

Arm is a brutal enforcer for the Devers clan, who pretty much run criminal life in this part of Ireland. With his child growing up and a feeling that his life needs to change, he looks for a way to escape. But that’s easier said than done in this world. Cosmo Jarvis (Lady Macbeth) is outstanding in Nick Rowland’s hard-hitting debut.

★★★★ “An immersive tale of tortured masculinity and divided loyalties that pulls the viewer right into the raging bull mindset of its haunted protagonist.” - Mark Kermode, The Observer

★★★★ “The direction, by the novice Nick Rowland, is assured. You’ve seen it before. But not like this.” - Kevin Maher, The Times

★★★★ “Keoghan and Algar are excellent, Jarvis a sad-eyed revelation” - Danny Leigh, Financial Times

★★★★ “As dangerous and soppy-drunk as an old pub brawler.” - Helen O’Hara, Time Out “
