The romantic thriller genre gets an indie film makeover courtesy of this engrossing British drama. While living on an isolated island, an intense young woman (Jessie Buckley) finds herself drawn to an enigmatic outsider (Johnny Flynn)—who may or may not be a serial killer. The setup sounds like a cliché, but the story's actually inspired by a real-life British tabloid story. First-time writer-director adds a lot of flair to the proceedings, and there's some dangerously good chemistry between the two leads (both young London stage vets). 107 minutes R.
