An American girl, sent to the English countryside to stay with relatives, finds love and purpose while fighting for her survival as war envelops the world around her.
Director Kevin Macdonald chose to film the first half of this movie with a hand held camera to give the paradise-like countryside home a sense of humanity, as though the camera was alive and breathing. The second half of this movie was shot in a more steady and smoother style to make the war torn countryside more sharp and unforgiving, as though the camera was mechanical.
Imagine yourself being successful.
At 28:37, Isaac leaps over the couch (holding a flashlight) and lands comfortably seated, a quick-action scene completed with two different camera angles. In the first, Eddie is watching Isaac's antics, while in the second, Eddie is instead looking down at his radio.
