An undulating thriller

The success of a slow-moving thriller depends on the progression of the threat and the characters' belief in their peril. Else, the true disaster arrives as a resolution and - even worse, compadre? - an explosion of wasted time. Kindred might move at a zombie pace (the Romero type, eh) but is a triumph in turning a regular brew into a tasty pumpkin spice latte.

Both suspenseful and dramatic, Kindred is an undulating thriller full of second-guesses and betrayal under the tight enclosure of a manipulative family while remaining ohso perfectly British, quiches and all.

Kindred marks the full-feature debut for director Joe Marcantonio, and in any other year, this would have been a word-of-mouth hit at indie theaters. Marcantonio masters the slow burn. The setting is a properly-stuffy English manor that is foreboding and beautiful... until one notices the inner decay eating away at the wallpaper; hidden mold breaking through the cracks. Similarly, the movie starts out sunny and hopeful only to end in gloom and despair. Marcantonio is never flashy - until he needs to be - and often quiet, until the noise screams through.

Following the accidental death of her boyfriend, mother-to-be Charlotte is taken in by his estranged mother, Margaret, and her adult step-son, Thomas. At first their help and care is welcome until Charlotte becomes aware that they truly only want her unborn child to carry on the family name. Dread brings the realization that once the child is born, what need is there of the mother? Like Jonathan Harker in Castle Dracula, Charlotte's role transforms from guest to that of prisoner.

Charlotte's paranoia escalates as the narrative pushes forward. Her damaged phone is never returned. And what is being mixed in with her tea? Or is all this confusion an onset of rushing hormones? Even attempts at escape merely result in tighter restrictions. Charlotte wants the child but she desires her freedom all the more.

Running at 101 minutes, Kindred feels double that. Yet that distortion in time allows Marcantonio to fill this cinematic world with real and full moments: the sorrow at the death of Ben, Charlotte's paramour; the comfort of a cuppa divorced by the revolting poison within; the overwhelming joy over the possibility of freedom; questioning the duty of family and the role of motherhood. Kindred might be frustratingly slow, yet it is also thoroughly entertaining.

A fairly interesting ride to nowhere

I have liked Fiona Shaw's work and thought that I would look at this picture as she was in it.

Atmospherically and acting wise, it sustained my interest. There seemed to be the elements of a good story and it kept me guessing right along as to what the final revelation might be.

When it got to the end, I just could not believe what a let down it was. The whole film led absolutely nowhere and to not have an adequate explanation to all that went before was quite devastating if not disappointing.

Pointless................

This movie just becomes one more recent film , in which it ends, and I ask myself, "Why did someone think that was a good idea for a movie ?". I like Jack Lowden, I saw the trailer and thought I was going to be seeing a supernatural thriller. This movie is neither of those things and maybe it's trying to make some kind of social commentary, but there is barely a plot here. While the movie is well acted by the 3 leads, it is very poorly written and uses the new standard for bad films, of making characters act like idiots to advance the plot. There is a fair amount of nonsense and plenty that goes unexplained. The movie hints at sinister elements but never really goes anywhere. It also doesn't help that the lead character is the most poorly written, Fiona Shaw and Lowden both have scenes in which they shine, and poor Tamara Lawrance isn't called on to do much even though she is the whole film. So little happens in this ,I just don't understand who would look at this script and then produce it for an audience in 2020. It isn't a total bore but I just kept thinking, well now it's going to get going and it never really does. The only good thing I can say about it other then the performances is that the ending was a tiny bit of a surprise. Not worth it though, not at all.
