A debut feature from brothers, Eadward & George Stocks...they should have made a short film instead.
It has that major failing that too many low-budget, debut features tend to have...strong premise with an exhausting execution...stretching the elastic until it snaps! If you don't have enough material for a feature...don't make a feature!!!
Despite a relatively strong start...unfortunately, as the film nears its conclusion...it all starts to unravel, not in an Agatha Christie sort-of-way...it does come across as a poor man's Mr Ripley.
Despicable characters are certainly fun to play and to be played with...but, when all the characters are [truly] despicable, there's no room for manoeuvre...leaving, as this film does, a rather unsatisfactory taste in the mouth!
A fragile young artist (LILY), fresh out of University, meets an attractive young man in a club (FINN). Lily invites Finn to come and stay with her at her house while her parents vacation in Italy for the summer. When Lily's jealous younger brother (JAMIE) finds out that Finn is not who he claims to be, Jamie decides to play a sinister game to get rid of him.
