A young Englishman plots revenge against his late cousin's mysterious, beautiful wife, believing her responsible for his death. But his feelings become complicated as he finds himself falling under the beguiling spell of her charms.
Got to see this at Sundance earlier this year and really loved it. Great chemistry with the cast. Witty and smart and thoroughly entertaining, with some truly poignant moments sprinkled in as well. In addition to a strong voice behind the film, navigating between the humor and drama, Lister-Jones was very captivating on the screen as well, and her music didn't miss a beat as well. Overall very impressive little indie film.
