Since bursting on the scene with her 2013 award-winning, Oscar Wilde-inspired film "The Selfish Giant," writer-director Clio Barnard has become a leading name in the world of British independent cinema. She returns with a new hard-hitting drama that looks to be as emotionally gripping as her previous effort.

Featuring Golden Globe-winner Ruth Wilson (Showtime's The Affair) as a woman with a turbulent past who finds herself returning to her family sheep farm to confront both her estranged brother and her traumatic memories, check out the trailer for Barnard's latest dramatic mystery thriller "Dark River."

The film, which is inspired by Rose Tremain's acclaimed novel "Trespass," also stars Mark Stanley (aka Grenn from "Game of Thrones") as Wilson's bitter brother and Sean Bean (aka Ned Stark from "Game of Thrones") as Wilson's sick and abusive father. Joe Dempsie (aka Gendry from "Game of Thrones") also co-stars.

After premiering to mostly positive reviews at this year's Toronto International Film Festival, "Dark River" is slated for a February 23rd theatrical release in the U.K.

synopsis:
Following the death of her father, Alice (Ruth Wilson) returns home to Yorkshire for the first time in 15 years, to claim the tenancy of the family farm she believes is rightfully hers. Once there she encounters her older brother Joe (Mark Stanley) a man she barely recognizes, worn down by years of struggling to keep the farm going whilst caring for their sick father. Joe is thrown by Alice’s sudden arrival, angered by her claim and finds her presence increasingly impossible to deal with. Battling to regain control in a fraught and fragile situation, Alice must confront traumatic memories and family betrayals to find a way to restore the farm and salvage the bond with her brother before both are irrevocably lost.
