Two sisters and a dog live on the bleak English moors, dreaming of love and power in the 19th century. The arrival of a hapless governess and a moor-hen set all three on a strange and dangerous path. The Moors is a dark comedy about love, desperation, and visibility, a descendant of the Brontë sisters’ novels, but not beholden to them.
“A stark and lonely landscape might indeed be a fertile petri dish for enterprising imaginations, turned in on themselves and longing for connection.” New York Times
