Interview: Writer/director Hope Dickson Leach talks ‘The Levelling’

by Stuart Wright

In his latest podcast/interview, host Stuart Wright talks to writer/director Hope Dickson Leach about her debut feature film The Levelling.

A stunning debut feature by writer-director Hope Dickson Leach, starring Ellie Kendrick (Game of Thrones) and David Troughton (The Archers). Against the backdrop of the floods that devastated her home, Clover (Kendrick) returns to her family farm to confront her estranged father, Aubrey (Troughton). Shadowed by ill-remembered conflicts and unspoken regrets, the pair set out to heal their fractious yet still loving relationship. Dickson Leach showcases her burgeoning skill as a filmmaker to watch, displaying a remarkable ability to craft drama from silence and inference. Troughton gives a finely tempered performance, perfectly matched by Kendrick’s extraordinary presence in the breakout role of the year.

The Levelling is on iTunes, Amazon Instant, Google, BFI player, Curzon Home Cinema, Sky, FilmDoo and the Peccadillo player; available through peccapics.com
