Mothering Sunday (out Jun 2) is an above average British drama that speaks to the lingering impact of love and tragedy. Centred largely in 1924, it's the tale of a maid (Odessa Young) who falls in love with a wealthy Englishman (Josh O'Connor) but societal customs will deny them a chance at lifelong happiness. With dialogue kept to a minimum, the film's moods are built around the beautiful cinematography and seductive music score. Grade: B+.
