A Field in England

A Field in England

Directed by Ben Wheatley

England: 1648 AD. A small group of deserters flee from a raging battle through an overgrown field. They are captured by two men: O'Neil and Cutler. O'Neil (Michael Smiley), an alchemist, forces the group to aid him in his search to find a hidden treasure that he believes is buried in the field. Crossing a vast mushroom circle, which provides their first meal, the group quickly descend into a chaos of arguments, fighting and paranoia, and they slowly become victim to the terrifying energies trapped inside the field. A FIELD IN ENGLAND is a psychedelic trip into magic and madness from Ben Wheatley – award-winning director of KILL LIST and SIGHTSEERS.

A group of English Civil War soldiers are captured by an alchemist and fall victim to violent and nightmarish forces.

Cast: Julian Barratt, Peter Ferdinando, Richard Glover, Reece Shearsmith, Michael Smiley

Really enjoyed this one a lot. Favorite Wheatley movie by far. He does love his flashing lights sequences that's for sure.

seeing the frail lead character overcome the sinister forces that torment his mind and sense of being and ultimately triumph was a very nice thing to see in this occultish nightmare.

Well constructed, abstract glory.

I wanted to like it more but thought it was okay. Reece Shearsmith's performance is worth the watch.
