True Things

After her tender directorial debut Only You, British filmmaker Harry Wootliff returns with something equally intimate and intoxicating. Ruth Wilson is sensational as a woman unravelling, while Tom Burke doubles-down on his aptitude for playing emotionally-manipulative men. With sensual, sometimes claustrophobic cinematography and a prickly score, Wootliff’s film gets under the skin, and then some.
