Grieving the death of their infant child, Grant (Daniels) and Christine (Kirwan) head to the coast to spend time with old friend Dean (Maloney) and his younger girlfriend. But isolation, grief and alcohol prove a combustible mix.
The craftsmanship is laudable, the performances committed and the vision unique. But this meld of fantasy and melodrama and its ruminations on loss, grief, reconciliation and hope are undermined by strained artifice, insistent symbolism, fussy editing and an intrusive score.
Ambitious but only partially successful, this British character drama belongs in the 'curate's egg' bracket.
