Harry Macqueen's debut film is a tender and honest exploration of love and change. When Harvey (Harry Macqueen) hears that his old friend Lola (Lori Campbell) is returning home after years abroad he arranges to take her away for the weekend to the sea-side cottage where they spent so much of their youth. What follows is a touching and beautiful story of a old friendship rekindled within a new context. Hinterland is a poetic journey of self-discovery and heartbreak in contemporary Britain, a very original and visually stunning road-trip film.Written by
From the opening shot the film invites attention. We immediately feel drawn to the two characters and we sense how important it is that Harvey meets up with his old friend Lola. Harry Macqueen manages to convey longing , trepidation and hope without little dialogue. Both actors play their parts well and the setting is beautiful.
I particularly liked the ability to convey such a depth of emotion with no graphic demonstration of it. The camera work demonstrating where Harvey is thinking of Lola is very cleverly done
The film goes to show that you do not need big budgets, or even big story lines to captivate an audience. Good actors, directing , a lovely setting and beautiful camera work can achieve that.
