Departure movie full length review - Terrible Departure

I hated this movie; it was terrible! The only redeeming feature is the setting: the South of France in autumn which is captured magnificently by great camera work.

The performances by some of the supporting cast namely Phenix Brossard as Clemente and Finbar Lynch as Philip, Elliot's father, are wooden. While the opportunity to provide an insight into the exploration of sexuality by Elliott (Alex Lawther) isn't totally lost, it's often clichéd. The representation of women in the film is pitiful. This is a bleak, miserable and depressing story so be prepared. And the off-hand disclosure at the end when Philip and Beatrice (Juliet Stevenson) are arguing is trite.
