  • With new movies coming available nearly every day, it’s nigh impossible to see everything. Where technology saves audiences the world over is in the unprecedented access that streaming offers through on-demand or digital services to films the audience might otherwise miss.

It’s an achievement in cinema that will startle audiences even more because this is Matthews’s and Drummond’s first feature film – an emotionally relentless film which feels like it’s been handled by masters of the craft.
