A dark and compelling thriller exploring what happens when heinous crimes, long buried in the past, come back to haunt us. Created and written by Kate Brooke (Mr Selfridge, Ice Cream Girls, The Making of a Lady), leading actress Sarah Parish (Broadchurch, W1A, Cutting It) plays respected police officer Detective Superintendent Elizabeth Bancroft. Ruthless and courageous, Bancroft is a brilliant copper. She has given her life to the police force. But when ambitious fast-tracked recruit, Katherine Stevens joins the force, played by acclaimed actress Faye Marsay (Game of Thrones, Black Mirror, Love Nina), Katherine takes on a cold case and unwittingly disturbs the ghosts of Bancroft's devastating past. With strong female characters at its heart and a detective with an explosive secret, this original crime drama is packed full of twists.
Harking back to the wilderness days of British cinema, The Wedding Tackle is an unsophisticated comedy of manners and relationships. Dealing with the impending matrimony of Hal and Vinny, a union that neither are particularly keen to enter into, the story intertwines a number of characters during the events of Hal's stag night. As the title suggests, much of the humour is aimed below the waist, and although it does wend its way to some sort of romantic conclusion, subtlety is not the film's strong point. Victoria Smurfit's Clodegh is by far the best character, an urban Tank Girl whose morals are as erratic as her driving skills. Bold, brash and noisy, The Wedding Tackle isn't the worst film around, but we can do so much better. --Phil Udell
