Exposition is a tricky bitch to deliver, and often it comes in large uncomfortable dollops that bust up the flow of the narrative, but Impey presents the complex background of Robert in a impressive way and creates empathy for this dark character just like John Ajvide Lindqvist does in Let the Right One In 2008 – he exposes the fragile child in a vulnerable setting – the frustration and helplessness that Robert went through as a child is what has formed him and as soon as Faye regains her strength and starts bollocking him, he falls right back into the role of victim again. Which creates an interesting position for the audience, because now we have two characters that we can feel a connection with – the one out for revenge and the one fighting for her life.
