Dark River

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.
