Brilliant Love review

Despite featuring more shags than a seabird colony, this tale of hyper-sexual photos made by northern hipsters Noon (Nancy Trotter Landry) and her shutterbug boyfriend Manchester (Liam Browne) rapidly wears out its erotic welcome.

Director Ashley Horner’s provocative, poetic visuals can’t compensate for Sean Conway’s meandering script, lurching from torpor to melodrama.

The lead actors’ first-time performances are raw, and Trotter Landry parades a moody intensity.

How explicit is it? If you meet Browne naked, it won’t be his face you’ll recognise first.
