The Nest

The Nest ★★½

Honestly, I think I'm starting to be over the "rich perfect family is actually very sad" drama, especially when the writing is as obvious as it is here. Durkin clearly has a good sense of pacing and atmosphere (few things feel as lived-in here as his portrait of Thatcher-era London), and the actors make do with the script they have, but it all feels kind of superficial, like a pretty carpet of undeveloped themes.
