Funny, smart and slightly twisted. The story of three 'friends' stuck on a yacht was a big hit with the audience. Probably not one that'll stick long in the memory for me, but it provided a decent dollop of entertainment.
The bottle movie where friends are put under pressure and secrets are revealed is a familiar concept that succeeds here due to a witty script and some good performances from the cast. The violence was also some of the most visceral and painful to watch of the festival, although I seriously question the idea that they could go without water for so long and sustain all that trauma. The level of interest does feel like it flags towards the end and I think it would have worked better as a play, but should be checked out if you didn't catch it on the discovery screen.
