“Masterfully engrosses and disturbs in equal measure in its portrayal of a soul destroyed during the pursuit of freedom.” – Matthew Pejkovic, Matt’s Movie Reviews

“Pugh is a wrecking crew, communicating pure malevolence with a simple glance, but always keeping her composure. She may be evil, but she’s first and foremost a lady.” – Adam Graham, Detroit News


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.
