Watch: Let Him Go is slow but intense and surprising

Let Him Go is a film with an innocuous title that belies a very surprising and dramatic film…

Plot

After the death of their son, a retired cop and his wife go on a journey to rescue their grandson from the clutches of a sinister and dangerous family.

Acting

Superb performances by the core cast, especially Lesley Manville who conjures up a chillingly manic super bitch. 

8 out of 10 for acting. 

Plot/Script

Initially glacially slow, the story draws the audience in and then hits them with an incredibly intense and anxiety ridden finale. It is also never predictable. 

8 out of 10 for story 

Cinematography

An exquisite construction of imagery in a picturesque part of America creates a beautiful look for this film. 

8 out of 10 for cinematography 

Set/Costumes  

The film is set in the early 1960s and the filmmakers have created an authentic recreation of that time period. 

8 out of 10 for sets and costumes .

Entertainment 

A little slow in parts, but this film will snare you into it’s evolving and well constructed plot and the performances are a joy to be held. 

8 out of 10 for entertainment value 

Average 

Adding all those scores means Let Him Go gets an average of 8.0 out of ten.
