Matthew_Lucas's rating of the film The Loneliest Planet

Beautifully shot drama about a newly engaged couple who set out on a hiking trip with a man who barely speaks English and tells awkward jokes for a guide. It seems like a normal romantic trip, until one unexpected moment changes their entire relationship. Hushed and observant Julia Loktev hauntingly evokes the subtle shifts in relationships that are often unspoken. Drags in spots, but strikingly effective.
