Make Up

Swimming in mesmerising, starkly-composed visuals, where the Cornish seascapes are as stirring as they are frightening, this is a coming-of-age story given new depths by British writer-director Claire Oakley’s genre-bending storytelling. Punctuated by chilling sound design and an otherworldly atmosphere, Make Up is a potent piece of cinema, with a capital C.
