Film: Dark River

With astonishing central performances from both Ruth Wilson and Mark Stanley, Clio Barnard’s third feature (following The Arbor and The Selfish Giant) does not disappoint.

After the death of her father, Alice returns to the Yorkshire farm she grew up on in the belief that the tenancy is hers to claim, only to be faced with the trauma of her past and the anger of her brother, Joe.

“A severe, stoic but internally screaming third feature from gifted British writer-director Clio Barnard.” – Variety

For more Clio Barnard, see The Arbor also playing on 17 June.


Women in Film
In the centenary year of the 1918 suffrage act, celebrating women’s voices has never been more important. With this in mind, we present a season dedicated entirely to women in film. All the films in this season are directed or co-directed by women, and most are female-focused in their narrative.
