A rare ‘double-billed’ night viewing at Oak Tree House: Let Him Go (Netflix) 2020 & Shattered (Amazon) 2022. Gripping

Good to see both lead actors again – Kevin and Diane, who started acting aged 14. Lesley Manville plays it well as the evil matriarch. ‘I liked Booboo Stewart’s hat – not a big part but played it well. It’s a US neo-western, Directed, written, and co-produced by Thomas Bezucha, and is based on the 2013 novel of the same name by Larry Watson. The film follows a retired sheriff and his wife who try to rescue their grandson from a dangerous family living off-the-grid. The two women certainly steal the show. As Moscow born Sasha Luss does in Shattered. She certainly does! The two films undoubtedly made me think of ‘fingers and thumbs’! Rotten Tomatoes 25% audience score: disagree. I’d give it 75% and liked its Hithcockian flavour.

After lonely tech millionaire Chris (Cameron Monaghan, “Shameless”) encounters charming, sexy Sky (Lilly Krug), passion grows between them — and when he’s injured, she quickly steps in as his nurse … I won’t say anymore … enjoy. A bit part by John Malkovich (aka the New Pope – loved him ion that role) always a pleasure.
