CGiii Comment

The only problem with this film is all the male characters, very wooden. Apart from that minor quibble, this is a powerful piece...accentuated by the rather remarkable Bella Ramsey.


The(ir) Blurb...

Requiem is set in 1605, against the backdrop of the witch trials. It's a coming of age story, following Evelyn as she engages in a game of cat and mouse against her father, Minister Gilbert, in order to be with Mary, the woman she loves.
