Director Tom Harper could have asked for no better calling card than
this debut feature film. 'The Scouting Book For Boys', starring the
burgeoning talent of Thomas Turgoose (known for his lead in Shane
Meadows' 'This Is England'), is a dark story that follows the
experiences of two friends on the cusp of adolescence, experiencing the
tragedy of growing up far too fast as a result of the situation they
plunge themselves into.
David (Turgoose) and Emily (played by Holly Grainger) are best friends
living in the idyllic solitude of a Norfolk caravan park. Their
sheltered lives are shattered when Emily is told that she will have to
move away to live with her Dad, and so together the two plan to hide
Emily in a nearby beach cave. The resulting police search reveals
secrets about Emily that David was unprepared for; with his feelings
for her growing stronger by the day, and with the real reason for her
running away becoming clear, David's romantic existence unravels into a
nightmare of strange, conflicting emotions.
The success of this film lies in the fact that the director and writer
(Jack Thorne) have managed to capture that sense of desperate
adolescent obsession. The teenage protagonists are created faithfully.
There is never any inclination to patronise their confused emotions -
instead, the intensity of feeling provides the main dramatic impetus,
as the dynamic of a childhood relationship begins to change drastically
in the face of responsibilities which they are simply not capable of
Cinematographer Robbie Ryan in this film creates a love ballad for the
Norfolk coast, drenching his shots in golden hues and hazy stretches of
empty beach, superbly capturing a landscape caught halfway between land
and sea. His work makes the tragic violence of the final scenes all the
more unbearable, emphasising to the audience how far these teenagers
have come in the course of the narrative, ripped from the dappled
summers of childhood into the dank half-light of a cold cave.
The leading performances from Turgoose and Grainger carry the audience
forward into the darkness of the final plot twists. Thomas Turgoose is
undoubtedly an intriguing acting talent, creating in his character a
restrained yet emotionally potent portrayal of adolescent
love/obsession. Holly Grainger is admirable as the independent teenage
girl who thinks she can take on the world and all it throws at her,
unable to recognise how out of her depth she really is. The way she
moves from being in complete control to utter dependence on David
underlines an impressive understanding of Emily's emotional
The final turn of the plot has the potential to estrange some viewers,
as the director leads his audience to the brink of emotional distress.
But the layering of the film requires the charting of fallen innocence
to be fully realised, and the director doesn't flinch at its execution.
This is a daring introduction to the world of feature film for Tom
Harper; its release marks the arrival of a significant new talent in
the U.K. film industry.
