Filmspot are delighted to present a special screening of Anthony Asquith’s gripping thriller, ‘A Cottage on Dartmoor’, with live score composed and performed by Brighton-based pianist par-excellence, Joss Peach.
A simple tale, but beautifully told, ‘A Cottage on Dartmoor’ tells of assistant barber Joe, who is in love with Sally, a manicurist. His jealous reaction when Sally rejects him in favour of another leads to terrible consequences. This is, however, not a clean-cut ‘good vs. evil’ picture: the film has layers of both ambiguity and suspense. While touching on the themes of loneliness, lust and mental illness, ‘A Cottage on Dartmoor’ is ultimately about both the joys and savagery of love.
