Tom Bradley’s review:
What an absolute fucking shitshow.
In the best way possible.
Stunningly acted and overwhelmingly bleak, Considine's Tyrannosaur is rough from start to finish. But just try and take your eyes off the screen; it's nigh impossible.
Set around the life of Joseph, who is - for lack of a better description - a Scottish fuck-up, living in Buckingham, he accidentally meets Hannah (played by an absolutely thunderous Olivia Colman) in a charity shop. It swirls and sways through their lives; taking in Joseph's Irish friend Tommy and Hannah's husband, played brilliantly by Eddie Marsan.
Just...watch it. Before I give too much away.
Favourite Scene: "Why Tyrannosaur?" ...in a twist of fate, you won't have a dry eye.
