Our take

This dramatic tale of city surveillance and a woman’s obsession with a man from her past was Andrea Arnold’s stunning debut after winning an Oscar® for Best Short Film. Its urban setting was the director’s focus before moving to the wilder country landscapes of Wuthering Heights and American Honey.
