Description

Witness dark deeds in Civil War-era rural England. A Field In England is a psychedelic trip into magic and madness from Ben Wheatley, award-winning director of past SF Indie selections Down Terrace,Kill List and Sightseers.

“Wheatley’s new film is grisly and visceral, an occult, monochrome-psychedelic breakdown taking place somewhere in the West Country during the civil war. A group of deserters, starving and staggering across country in the entirely delusional hope of an “alehouse” over the next hill, fall under the sinister control of O’Neil, a necromancer and practitioner of the forbidden arts, played by Michael Smiley. O’Neil enforces his sadistic will; especially on the cringing scholar Whitehead (Reece Shearsmith), who is required to help him locate a buried cache of gold somewhere in the field. Amid the carnage of war, the men’s fear of death, pain and the non-existence of God creates the conditions for general hysteria that is ignited by eating the variously shaped mushrooms sprouting in the soil.” (Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian)
