The Levelling (2016)

An intimate portrayal of strained family relationships laid bare revelation by grim revelation, The Levelling starkly lays out the follies, flaws and narrow-mindedness of individuals endeavouring to come to terms with a series of transformative plights.

Director Hope Dickson Leach’s potent virtual chamber piece pits the ever-expanding skillset of Ellie Kendrick against that of seasoned actor David Troughton. The results are enthralling.

The whole narrative is laid out in the following trailer. Please try not to watch it!

  1. Troughton is following in the footsteps of his late father, and carving out a distinguished career as he gets older. This has been well-received, and continues the tradition of some powerful British dramas.
    Best wishes, Pete.
