Getting ratty
21 October 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Adapted from a Stephen King short story, 1922 is a slow burn psychological thriller of a conniving man who once made a wrong decision.

Thomas Jane knowing that he is too old to be an A lister now settles for character roles. He plays Wilfred James, a poor farmer in Nebraska. His wife named Arlette (Molly Parker) dislikes the farming life and just wants to sell her share of the farm and leave to the city with her son. Her husband can rot for all she cares.

Their son Henry is sweet with the young girl in the neighbouring farm which makes it easy for Wilfred to manipulate his son to do a dastardly deed in killing Arlette.

This despicable act unhinges Wilfred, plunges the family and even his neighbour into a spiral of darkness. Wilfred sees visions of his wife and his house is plagued with rats. His son runs off with his pregnant girlfriend and on to a life of crime.

A fog of doom overhangs them all, Wilfred is slowly driving him insane. The film is well acted by Jane, it is slow, there are some icky scenes with rats. It is essentially a gloomy ghost story.
