Florence Pugh (The Falling) gives a luminous performance as a defiant, passionate young woman struggling against suffocating societal norms in this thrilling 19th century-set tragedy, the film debut of acclaimed British theatre director William Oldroyd. Adapted from an 1865 Russian novella and transposed to rural England, it follows young bride Katherine (Pugh), trapped in a loveless marriage and browbeaten by her sadistic husband’s callous family. But when she embarks on an affair, a new force is unleashed inside her; so powerful that she will stop at nothing to get what she wants.
