DRAMA with a capital D. In rural England 1865, a young woman sold into a loveless marriage with a much older man, begins a passionate affair with a young worker on her husband’s estate. Under the influence of her oppressive in-laws, her actions become increasingly reckless, obsessive and violent. Florence Pugh gives a remarkable performance as Katherine and the audience is witness to the dramatic development of her character and the breathtaking unfolding of the story.
