Red Road

(Great Britain/Denmark, 2006, 113 minutes)

A lonely widow working at a CCTV surveillance centre finds out on screen that the man responsible for the death of her husband and child has been released from jail and begins stalking him. Technically accomplished and undeniably provocative but rather muddled melodrama that wastes its gripping premise and set-up on a somewhat conventional conclusion.

Starring Kate Dickie, Tony Curran, Martin Compston, Natalie Press.
