2013, Drafthouse Films, 90 min, UK, Dir: Ben Wheatley
In 1648, a group of deserters from the English civil war take refuge from battle in an overgrown field, crossing paths with an alchemist’s assistant and treasure hunter.
While there are plenty of mushrooms, treasure proves elusive in the field – but something much more ominous may be hiding there.
This enigmatic film from on-the-rise director Ben Wheatley (KILL LIST) is both surreal and sinister, featuring moments of dark humor and stunning B&W cinematography. With Michael Smiley and Reece Shearsmith.
“A FIELD IN ENGLAND is a mind-bending monochrome masterpiece… one of the best and bravest British films of the year.” – Twitch Film
