Set on an isolated farm in Shropshire in 1657. The story of Fanny Lye, a woman who learns to transcend her oppressive marriage and discover a new world of possibility – albeit at great personal cost. Living a life of Puritan stricture with husband John and young son Arthur, Fanny Lye’s world is shaken to its core by the unexpected arrival of two strangers in need, a young couple closely pursued by a ruthless sheriff and his deputy.

Reviews:

Peake is terrific throughout, and the dreamlike mood lingers after the credits roll, a story made to chew on, told amid the mists of an England briefly up for grabs. Financial Times

While Maxine Peake shines in the lead role of a downtrodden woman finding her own voice, all aspects of Thomas Clay’s gritty, immersive historical drama blaze with visceral authenticity. Empire Magazine

It is a film which follows its own instincts and is happy to retain (and proudly display) a few ragged edges, and it’s all the more interesting for it. Little White Lies
