Edward (Tom Hiddleston) arrives on a remote island off the English coast, to join his mother (Kate Fahy) and sister (Lydia Leonard) who have organised the family holiday to say goodbye to Edward before he embarks on a year of voluntary service in Africa. However, the absence of Edward’s father serves to bring the family’s buried anger and repressed emotions to the surface. The second feature from award-winning writer-director Joanna Hogg, Archipelago is an excruciatingly honest and darkly comic deconstruction of middle class sensibilities in its portrayal of a family on holiday and in crisis.
