Rancher Phil Burbank (Benedict Cumberbatch) is an intimidating presence to all but his brother George (Jesse Plemons). The two men run a hugely successful inherited ranch on the edge of a tiny frontier town in the early 1920s. With only the company of the rough cattlehands, George yearns for something a little more refined, while Phil is content with their mutual isolation. When George brings home a new wife (Kirsten Dunst) and her teenage son (Kodi Smit-McPhee), Phil turns on his most arresting power to torment. Adapting from a novel by Thomas Savage, Jane Campion grips you from the start and expertly ratchets the tension, whilst Benedict Cumberbatch brilliantly terrorises every frame with silent menace.
