Unrelated ★★★½

Joanna Hogg's feature directorial debut is incredibly lo-fi but impressive. Understated, simmering sexual tension between the leads (including a young and beautiful Tom Hiddleston) never really explodes in the way I was predicting. Instead, the eventual climax is a revelation that feels underexplored. Before that though, Hogg proves herself a master of complex, nuanced framing and mise-en-scene. One sequence which follows a family's silent reaction to an argument is one of the most memorable examples of character driven cinematography I've seen.
