Dir. Alice Troughton, UK, 2023, 103 mins. Cast. Richard E. Grant, Julie Delpy, Daryl McCormack.

Liam, an aspiring and ambitious young writer, eagerly accepts a tutoring position at the family estate of his idol, renowned author JM Sinclair, and his wife Hélène. But soon, Liam realises that he is ensnared in a web of family secrets, resentment, and retribution. Reeling from the mysterious passing of their eldest son, the Sinclairs push Liam to work harder and invite him to stay on the estate grounds with them. Soon enough, lies big and small unfurl as a well-intentioned exercise quickly transforms into a tale of lust, betrayal, jealousy, and the quest for legacy-defining relevance.
