Jude Law and Carrie Coon simmer in this tightly-wound two-hander from writer-director Sean Durkin (Martha Marcy May Marlene) that’s at once an engrossing domestic drama and something akin to a ghost story.

Charismatic entrepreneur Rory (Law) relocates his family from the United States to a chilly, sprawling country house in England with dreams of profiting from booming 1980s London. But as his wife Allison (Coon) and their wayward children struggle to adapt to the complications of their new lifestyle, the promise of a lucrative new beginning starts to unravel, and the couple begin to face the unwelcome truths lying beneath the surface of their marriage.

Not a lot of storytellers working in film today take the time to lay the emotional foundation of each character. Durkin does, and when his characters crack, the destruction feels all the more pronounced.
