The privileged life of a white grandmother (wonderfully played by Gwen Ffrangcon-Davies) in Apartheid South Africa unravels as she visits her sister's farm during a political uprising. The old lady seems blind to the dangers, but her young grandson is exposed to the violent horrors of the unrest. This incisive, chilling debut from director Stephen Frears boasts stunning location photography.
