Retreat | Ilan Eshkeri
While seeking to repair their marriage at a remote Scottish island While seeking to repair their marriage at a remote Scottish island retreat, Martin and Kate (Cillian Murphy and Thandie Newton) happen upon an injured man (Jamie Bell), washed ashore, with news of a devastating epidemic wreaking havoc across Europe.
Playing like an impassioned symphony of regret, loneliness and melancholia, veteran English composer Ilan Eshkeri (Kick-Ass, Coriolanus) invests debut writer/director Carl Tibbetts’ dark, claustrophobic character study with an expansive emotional subtext to compliment its otherwise constrained narrative. Complex string arrangements like “Visitors Book” lay bare the unease, fear and uncertainty that permeates the characters’ inner lives and outward relationships while tracks like “There Are People Here” add a layer of percussion to accentuate the growing sense of paranoia with which the film veers toward its unexpected climax.
