Set in 17th Century New England (actually shot in Canada for tax reasons), the film tells the tale of William and his family: wife Katherine, teenage daughter Thomasin, son Caleb, two young twins and one baby. The family are banished from their community for a someway vaguely defined crime of biblical interpretation by William, a proud man who is utterly sure of his religious beliefs and will not compromise them in order to fit in as demanded.
I’ll admit I enjoy sci-fi and generally give any sci-fi movie a go. And this one comes with recommendations galore – inlcuding e.g. a score of 8.2 on IMDB and score of 91% on Rotten Tomatoes, so it must be pretty good.
