SYNOPSIS:

In the stark beauty of 19th Century Snowdonia a young girl, Gwen, tries desperately to hold her home together. Struggling with her mother’s mysterious illness, her father’s absence and a ruthless mining company encroaching on their land, a growing darkness begins to take grip of her home, and the suspicious local community turns on Gwen and her family.

Gwen is a great British debut from exciting new filmmaker William McGregor with a breakout performance from rising star Eleanor Worthington-Cox (Maleficent) alongside Maxine Peake (Funny Cow), Richard Harrington (Hinterland), Kobna Holdbrook-Smith (Mary Poppins Returns) and Mark Lewis-Jones (Star Wars: The Last Jedi).
