Gwen Rated 15


Dir. William McGregor. UK, 2018. 1h 24m. Starring Maxine Peake, Richard Harrington, Eleanor Worthington-Cox, Kobna Holdbrook-Smith, Mark Lewis Jones, Richard Elfyn.

Struggling with her mother’s mysterious illness, her father’s absence, and a ruthless mining company encroaching on the family's land, a young girl tries desperately to hold her home together. An atmospheric and exquisitely crafted gothic period drama set in the stark beauty of 19th-century Snowdonia. 

‘An eerie hybrid of gothic drama and social realism. It comes on like a chilling mystery-horror in the tradition of The Innocents’ ★★★★ Cath Clarke, The Guardian

‘Worthington-Cox is terrific; the mounting uncertainty in her eyes seeds the suspicion of wrongdoing throughout the film.’ Wendy Ide, Screen International
