Rising star Benedict Cumberbatch (from Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy; The War Horse and the BBC’s Sherlock) plays urban academic David. He and schoolteacher wife Dawn (Claire Foy, Season of the Witch) remove themselves to the pastoral village of David’s youth in order to begin a family. The quiet rhythms of their new life are disturbed, however, by the arrival of David’s powder keg of a brother Nick (Shaun Evans), a soldier on leave from Afghanistan. In short order, tension builds and violence surfaces, as David and Nick square off about skeletons in the family closet while Claire is left to wonder just how well she really knows the man she married. Writer/director D.R. Hood’s intriguing three-hander is an actor’s dream come true, and all three leads make the most of Hood’s razor-sharp dialogue and smart plotting. Hood’s evocative and moody direction—she knows exactly how to frame her protagonists to elicit emotion and foreshadow events—makes Wreckers a chilling and deeply unsettling work.

Guest expected to attend film screenings on 1/6 and 1/8
