Silent Storm, The (15)

Drama, Romance

An enigmatic outsider living on a remote Scottish island finds herself caught between her minister husband and the delinquent who is sent to live with them.

The critical consensus

Riseborough steals the show in a moody period drama loaded with atmosphere and tension.

****(*)Anna Smith, Empire Online, 17/05/2016

Inept and overwrought drama wasting the talent of Damian Lewis and Andrea Riseborough.

**(*)(*)(*)Angie Errigo, The List, 16/05/2016

The meditative, slow-moving approach is in the vein of Tarkovsky or old Theo Angelopoulos movies. The music adds to the sombre atmosphere. The hitch is a storyline that utterly defies credibility.

Damian Lewis and Andrea Riseborough play an unhappily married clergyman and his wife in Corinna McFarlane’s camp Scottish affair.
