Strong performances, the picturesque Yorkshire countryside and an affecting mood distinguish this “intelligent, taboo, and extremely funny” (Times) film from Pawel Pawlikowski. Bored and isolated, working-class Mona (Natalie Press) strikes up a passionate summer friendship with another 16-year-old, an aristocrat (Emily Blunt) who fancies herself something of a bohemian. As the pair spends more and more time together alone, the world outside begins to intrude, including Mona’s ex-con born-again brother (Paddy Considine). “Lovely” – New York Times.
