A mystery inside a love (or lust) story, Katarzyna Klimkiewicz’s debut feature stars the criminally underused Helen McCrory (Cherie Blair in The Queen) as Frankie, a confident, hyper-intelligent aerospace engineer in her 40s who works on secret government projects. While delivering a lecture at the university, she meets young Muslim student Kahil (Najib Oudghiri) and an initial spark ignites a conflagration. As their passionate romance grows, however, Kahil’s mysterious ways begin to raise questions about the young man’s intentions.

McCrory, one of the UK’s leading theater actors with a fistful of awards to her name, is in total command on the big screen, perfectly essaying Frankie’s journey from the heights of self-assurance – her success has made Frankie more than a little self-obsessed – to the rather more grounded role of doubting lover. McCrory’s spot-on performance is complemented by Klimkiewicz’s intelligent handling of the film’s slow-burning mystery. We can’t help but share McCrory’s growing unease as things are shown to be not quite what they seem…
