Clio Barnard (The Selfish Giant, The Arbor) offers up an impressive adaptation of Rose Tremain’s Trespass, moving the story’s location from France to Northern England, but keeping the action on a remote farm. Alice returns to her family home in Yorkshire after a 15-year absence. Battling to regain control of what she considers rightfully hers, she must confront traumatic memories and family betrayals to find a way to restore the farm and salvage the bond with her brother before both are irrevocably lost. A tale of sibling rivalry prompted by a family bereavement, Dark River features heartfelt performances by Ruth Wilson and Mark Stanley.
