Dark River premiere: A chat with Ruth Wilson and Clio BarnardCultureCinemaLondon Film Festival 2017
Clio Barnard’s new gripping drama Dark River premiered at the BFI London Film Festival last night. A dark tale that centres around a sibling relationship, it sees Ruth Wilson playing Alice alongside Mark Stanley as her brother Joe Bell, with a small appearance from their father, played by Sean Bean. We were in Leicester Square on the red carpet, speaking with Wilson and the director, Barnard.
Wilson spoke with us about the challenging methods she had to learn to fully integrate herself i the role, and what she likes (and dislikes) about her character.
Barnard told us of the minimalism of music used and her experience working with the sound technician and composer, making Dark River a riveting and stark drama.

Dark River is released nationwide on 23rd February 2018.
