Black Rock review

It's a bad day on Black Rock for old friends Kate Bosworth, Lake Bell and Katie Aselton (who also co-wrote and directed), visiting the eponymous island to dig up a time capsule they buried as kids.  

After a low-key set-up – all childish recollections and catty recriminations – they meet three ex-soldiers who’ve set up camp for the night, and the film takes a turn into darker territories. 

 

Strong on performances, though weak when the call to action arrives, this isn’t quite the distaff Deliverance promised, but it’s a credible indie thriller with characters worth caring about.
