Florence Pugh announces herself as a major talent to watch in William Oldroyd's impressively tough-minded Victorian tragedy.


This spellbinding period drama filmed in Northumberland and County Durham, and adapted from Nikolai Leskov’s classic Russian novel feels utterly of our time, an ancient story told in an entirely new way.

Rural England, 1865. Katherine (Florence Pugh) is stifled by her loveless marriage to a bitter man twice her age, whose family are cold and unforgiving. When she embarks on a passionate affair with a young worker on her husband's estate, a force is unleashed inside her, so powerful that she will stop at nothing to get what she wants.

Disappointing film considering the reviews its had. Nothing rings true about the set up. Almost empty down-at-heel mansion run by lower level servants when master and father away. Where were the female figures of authority - no mother figure, sister in law, aunt, matron? No head of the servant contingent. Two-dimensional male figures, no raison d'être for father in law's hostility or husband's lack of connection/ resentment. Poor Geordie accents, poor representation of Northumberland/ Co Durham. Moors could have been anywhere, possibly High Force or cauldron snout in one scene. Dismal, overgrown ditch had to make do as a main outdoor scene. Why nothing else to do besides sitting on a sofa all day or playing Lady Chatterly. No practising music, needlework, inviting friends to stay? Just weird.
