“There is a war coming…. A war that will last for a hundred years….
I think it is already here. I think we’ve been fighting it a long time”
A young Jewish physicist and a left-wing poet meet at a party and fall in love. As society splinters around them, the couple's struggle to survive erupts into violence.
A subversive and intimate love story about inheritance and the cycles of politics and history. Elayce Ismail directs a cast including Abigail Weinstock and Richard Katz.
Brutal production with barely a glimmer of hope
A little out of time
Mesmerising moments amid the darkness
Gripping but frustratingly shambolic
Snappy and tightly intelligent but flawed
Starts strong but ends up overshooting the mark
The performances also draw you in with their intensity
Has important themes to explore, but they are too often lost
A pacy drama spirals with a contrived ending
Intriguing study of whether trauma is passed down in our genes
No one emerges unscathed
A callow meditation on history
