Bait (15)

Acclaimed British film exploring tensions between locals and tourists in Cornwall.
Feature debut of Mark Jenkin, who shot the film on Black and White 16mm film.
Martin Ward is a cove fisherman, without a boat. His brother Steven has re-purposed their father’s vessel as a tourist tripper, driving a wedge between the brothers. With their childhood home now a get-away for London money, Martin is displaced to the estate above the picturesque harbour. As his struggle to restore the family to their traditional place creates increasing friction with tourists and locals alike, a tragedy at the heart of the family changes his world.

★★★★★ “One of the defining British films of the decade”. – Mark Kermode, The Guardian
