Synopsis

Skunk (Eloise Laurence), an 11-year-old diabetic who lives with her father (Tim Roth) and brother in an English residential district, witnesses the brutal assault of a sweet, but unstable young man named Rick (Robert Emms). Rick is her next door neighbor and his attacker is another neighbor, Bob Oswald (Rory Kinnear), whose daughter has accused Rick of raping her.

Although he’s quickly cleared, Rick, traumatized by the incident, is treated in a psychiatric hospital. During his first weekend home, Rick is taunted by the Oswald girl and her sisters. Skunk secretly visits Rick at his house and discovers a tragedy.

  • 5 stars "A lovely and very touching story about dark and scary and confounding things. And while that seem to be a contradiction in terms, I can't think of a better way to describe this wonderful movie. The strange interconnected stories of three families who live on the same cul-de-sac were frightening, and infuriating, and worrisome, and joyous, and silly, and everyday, and poignant, and altogether wonderful. Eloise Laurence is a marvel, Tim Roth and Cillian Murphy are brilliant as usual, and the supporting cast are all fantastic. I highly recommend this movie for anyone interested in good writing, good acting, and a story -- of both the good and the bad sides of life -- that will stay with you for"
