The Falling

Drama . Thriller . Mystery

It’s 1969 at an English girls school full of seething hormones and turbulent emotions; Lydia and Abbie are best friends, existing largely in a universe of two. Abbie is the undisputed leader, with natural charisma and magnetism, and Lydia is fixated on her friend, having long been emotionally abandoned by her single mum, an agoraphobe who hasn’t ventured outside for years and who barely acknowledges her daughter’s presence. Lydia’s fragile world starts to unravel when her white magik-obsessed brother and Abbie sleep together, and a tragedy and ensuing mysterious delirium overtake the school.

    This is terrific film-making – enough to bring a rush of blood to the head.

  • Mike McCahill

    For all The Falling’s period trimmings, its uncanny power resides in these ellipses and blackouts – in elements that cannot be easily rationalised.

  • Trevor Johnston

    This dizzying, courageous, utterly humane and slightly unhinged film is a unique achievement.

  • Jamie Graham

    Ambiguity is The Falling’s currency, and it’s all the richer for it.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Guy Lodge

    Morley marries a quasi-Victorian premise with a modernist technique that feels drawn from her film’s own milieu.

  • Oliver Lyttelton

    Every time the picture opens a fascinating door, you're held back from going through by a naff filmmaking choice or a rote story move.

  • Patrick Gamble

    The Falling's refreshingly all-female perspective expects the viewer to become wholly caught up in its broad surge of feeling, yet there's something unsatisfactory and disaffecting about the film's asinine finale.

    CineVue Full Review
  • Simon Crook

    Carol Morley’s film has a lot going for it, not least a thick, vaporous atmosphere, alive with unease and sexual anxiety, and an eye-catching debut from the casually charismatic Florence Pugh.

  • Elise Nakhnikian

    The film all leads to a melodramatic climax that wraps up the main character's explosive acting out in a too-neat package.
