  • Adam Whybray's rating of the film On Tender Hooks

    Sympathetic look at the human suspension sub-culture which, at 70 minutes, is exactly the right length. A narrative emerges of Kate's own hesitant interest turning to fear & disappointment as she realises that suspension isn't for her. As such, 'Tender Hooks' knocks the aspirational formula on its head; the people involved seem like decent folks but they're so keen for Kate to enjoy the act they turn faintly coercive
