Oliver Hermanus’s award-winning second feature is a mesmerising tale of desire and destructive self-loathing.

Deon Lotz is unforgettable as Francois, a successful middle-aged Afrikaner businessman whose carefully ordered world is ripped apart at his daughter’s wedding when he is introduced to the son of an old friend. He is completely smitten by the handsome, athletic Christian (Charlie Keegan). Fascination turns to obsession as he starts to stalk the young man, unable to act on his fatal attraction or to accept the homosexuality he has long repressed. A disturbing, provocative tragedy with a striking performance from Lotz as a man consumed by his own denial.
