Tense drama following the relationship between a self-destructive, alcoholic widower and a Christian charity shop worker. Joseph (Peter Mullan) is an aggressive and self-destructive loner who suffers from extreme mood swings and an inability to keep his temper in check. One such lack of control forces him to flee into a charity shop to hide from three youths. Here he strikes up an unlikely friendship with Hannah (Olivia Colman), a volunteer who attempts to calm Joseph and offer him a Christian way out of his troubles. Despite their differences, a relationship develops between the two. However, will the other man in Hannah's life, her husband, James (Eddie Marsan), have something to say about the burgeoning friendship?

Our review

"Paddy Considine has marked himself out as a very promising director with this powerful, gripping and brutal debut about the effects of human violence. It's emotionally told, sharply written with superb performances from Olivia Coleman and Peter Mullan."
