Capital Celluloid 2020 — Day 92: Tue Oct 13

Rose: A Love Story (Sheridan, 2020): BFI Player, 8.30pm


64th LONDON FILM FESTIVAL (7th - 18th October 2020) DAY 7

Every day (from October 7th to October 18th) I will be selecting the best London Film Festival each day that you can catch on the BFI Player service. Here is the LFF's main website for the general information you need.

Review: In the remote woodland outskirts of a quiet town, Rose and Sam live a back to basics existence, sheltered away from the prying eyes of society. Although entirely devoted to each other, they have to contend every day with the mysterious and deadly illness that plagues Rose’s life. But when the couple are forced to take in an uninvited guest, their solitude is unexpectedly interrupted, threatening to unleash the violent horror of Rose’s condition. In this inspired twist on the vampire myth, debut UK director Jennifer Sheridan has crafted a darkly claustrophobic horror experience, which relies on heady atmosphere rather than immediate scares. But underneath all the dread and foreboding lies a subtly devastating portrayal of commitment and the lengths we will go to protect the ones we love. Michael Blyth

Here (and above) is the trailer.
