Tyrannosaur (2011)

Director: Paddy Considine

Writer: Paddy Considine

Brutal, both physically and emotionally, British drama about a lonely old self-destructive man named Joseph (Peter Mullan) meeting Hannah (Olivia Colman) through a chance encounter.  She runs a Christian themed shop and is in a horrible abusive marriage.  The two are lost souls from opposite sides of the track who form a bond.  Colman, from the British series Peep Show, really surprised me.  Really good performance from everyone, but I guess after seeing her on Peep Show seeing her in this really was unexpected.  It is on Netflix Instant and worth checking out!
