Dark River is released in cinemas across the UK & Ireland on 23 February 2018

Following the death of her father, Alice (Ruth Wilson) returns home to Yorkshire for the first time in 15 years, to claim the tenancy of the family farm she believes is rightfully hers.  Once there she encounters her older brother Joe (Mark Stanley) a man she barely recognizes, worn down by years of struggling to keep the farm going whilst caring for their sick father.  Joe is thrown by Alice's sudden arrival, angered by her claim and finds her presence increasingly impossible to deal with.  Battling to regain control in a fraught and fragile situation, Alice must confront traumatic memories and family betrayals to find a way to restore the farm and salvage the bond with her brother before both are irrevocably lost.

Dark River was written and directed by Clio Barnard (2013's The Selfish Giant) and looks to be quite the potent mixture of dramatic, mystery, and thriller cinema. It also stars Sean Bean and Joe Dempsie.

See the trailer below (it features a new song by PJ Harvey). Stay tuned to The 405 for more on Dark River and catch the film on 23 February in UK and Irish theaters.
