Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"[A] low-key, high-tension British indie drama..."
‑ Dave Calhoun, Time Out
"For her debut feature, British film-maker Dictynna Hood has created a brooding drama of rural disquiet and sexual tension."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"The structure rambles. The plot sometimes bewitches, sometimes bemuses. The cast works valiantly to keep us caring."
‑ Nigel Andrews, Financial Times
"While the drama occasionally overheats, strong turns from the two leads keep us invested in the characters."
‑ Ian Freer, Empire Magazine
"D.R. Hood's intriguing, well-acted debut draws shifting lines of conflict ... before losing steam in the third act."
‑ Guy Lodge, Variety
"Wreckers blends spells of sheer, watching-paint-dry tedium with sparkier inter-sibling stuff and the odd bout of rural rumpy-pumpy."
‑ David Aldridge, Radio Times
"A low-key affair but an interesting take on social realism despite its flaws."
‑ Laurence Boyce, Little White Lies
"It's a promising film."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"In a year already stacked with accomplished British debuts, DR Hood's smart, engrossing and well-acted Wreckers deserves to be more than a footnote."
‑ Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
"Impressively directed and superbly written, this is an emotionally engaging, powerfully tense British drama with a trio of terrific performances from all three leads."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
