One of the most sadistic movies from the UK that has been produced in a long time and definitely one that evokes many emotions. “F***in’ hell” would best describe Eden Lake.
James Watkins definitely had his finger on the pulse while directing the movie and each character in it. Every moment of fear and doubt was projected so perfectly it was enchanting to watch. Jenny (Kelly Reilly), who was looking forward to a great weekend away with her soon to be husband Steve (Michael Fassbender), found themselves surrounded by a bunch of foul-mouthed scum’s of the teenage world.
The gang of obnoxious kids decided to ruin the couples get away by stealing their belongings, vandalizing their car and leaving them stranded and when the kids were confronted by Steve, a heated argument broke out leading to one of the worst times of their lives.
Eden lake was not only real to watch but evoked a lot of emotions and highlighted many social issues that we face in our time. From parental guidance, to social ethics, the message was crystal clear and to top it all off, great art direction and editing made it all come together nicely.
