The Winter Lake (2020)

Not sure how to describe this. Think thriller designed to make one feel glum. A glummer?

The plot sits somewhere between uncertain and predictable. And yet, overall, it worked for me. 

I think this is because it is a story that the title describes fairly accurately — a story about a place. For better or for worse I felt I had been transported to damp and gloomy Sligo. And that sense of being there made the on screen action that much more affective than it might otherwise have been.
