Joanna Hogg’s follow-up to Unrelated serves as a worthy companion piece to her acclaimed debut. With her son Edward about to embark on a volunteer trip to Africa, doting mother Patricia gathers her family together for a getaway to a holiday home on idyllic Tresco, one of the Isles of Scilly.

One of the most cinematically complete British films of the last 20 years. Not since Bill Douglas has a British film-maker utilized so perfectly the small details in both life and human interactions. It's almost like a mix between Chantal Akerman and Ozu.
A film of such understated beauty and grace. The way Hogg experiments with light, shading and colour are sublime. No one is making films of this calibre in British cinema at the moment. Simply astonishing.
Wonderful film. The breathtaking landscapes with washed out colors accompanied by chipping birds and the sound of trees moving in the wind all created a cold and gloomy ambience that went perfectly with the characters and the distance between them.
