A couple with latent sexual desires become entangled with a violent street gang in this film dubbed ‘ West Side Story as directed by John Waters’. Andrea Riseborough gives a knock-out physical performance, while Harry Melling’s post- Harry Potter fizzog communicates galaxies of conflicted feeling. Director Amanda Kramer (whose Give Me Pity! also plays EIFF) presents a hyperstylised exploration of queer desire and masculinity, featuring dance, BDSM fantasy, poetry and violence.
