Arcadia on the BBC

An everyday story of country folk…

In case you missed the very limited cinema release in 2018, Arcadia is being shown on the BBC (there’s no obvious connection with Topshop).

‘Quirky and surprising’ is about right – the official trailer gives a reasonable flavour of what to expect, and 79 minutes of this particular flavour of quirky and surprising will probably be enough for most viewers.

Some of the clips are fairly… interesting – almost enough to reinforce entirely baseless urban prejudices that the “heart of the country” is pretty close to the Wicker Man (or at best the Yorkshire scenes from An American Werewolf in London).
