The Nest
An ambitious entrepreneur and former commodities broker persuades his American wife and their children to leave the comforts of suburban America and return to his native England during the 1980s. Sensing opportunity, he rejoins his former firm and leases a centuries-old country manor, with grounds for their horses and plans to build a stable. Soon the promise of a lucrative new beginning starts to unravel, the couple have to face the unwelcome truths lying beneath the surface of their marriage.

Tomatometer quote iconAn effective pairing of period setting and timeless themes, The Nest wrings additional tension out of its unsettling story with an outstanding pair of lead performances.

Jim Judy quote iconIn these troubled times, I’m not sure who would want to sit through something like this, but I guess to each their own. For me, while I appreciate the work involved, it’s simply not my cup of tea.
