Five good friends drop down to a foursome after one disappears under mysterious circumstances. Now, years later, the quartet is reduced again with the very recent death of their fourth to prolonged illness. The three have gotten together to remember the life of the recently departed at the behest of his estranged daughter, Eve, who they’ve never met. With Eve’s arrival, what appeared to be a simple look back at her father’s life with his dearest friends quickly begins to feel like so much more, with Eve’s probing questions into their past and her knowing significantly more about all three of them than she should — including more than a few dark and buried secrets.
Written and directed by John Muggleton, Burn is a well-crafted and highly suspenseful ride that manages to keep you intrigued for the duration as to what Eve’s game is and where we’ll ultimately end up. Good pacing and having expert storyteller, Megan Carty, in the role of Eve makes for a tension filled slow burn of the script’s reveals.Read the full review.
