What are people saying?

  • J. O.'s rating of the film True North

    A sharp, engrossing drama following a crew on a near-bankrupt Scottish fishing trawler. The performances are outstanding, Mullan and Compston in particular are the perfect pair - stoic and manic, evolving with each other. The docu-realist cinematography lends beauty to the tense story that unfolds. This is an overlooked gem from nearly a decade ago - it's heavy and it's austere, but most of all - it's important.
