A FILM BY ALEXANDRA BOYD
 

"Set against a beautiful and haunting Suffolk landscape the film depicts an emotional and supernatural journey through connected lives, death and war."

"I am quite honestly overwhelmed with emotion.  The film took me on this beautiful, haunting journey and I was completely immersed to the very end.  I cannot stop thinking about that ending. It affected me so strongly."

"Widow’s Walk has immortalised the stunning Suffolk coast. It was breathtaking & artistically shot, gripping and completely captivating. I can’t wait to see it again and to visit the nearby film locations starting with Orford Lighthouse."

"The casting is flawless, the acting is superb, the direction, special effects and cinematography exceptional, a tremendous cinematic experience."

Powerful. Beautiful. Just the right touch of horror... So engaging, so quiet but yet thrilling and interesting... This is a different approach to a ghost story, while still keeping true to the genre. Stunning performances, great shooting, and stellar direction... The lighting, The sound. The palette. The weird time shifts that all made sense... It put that statement on it.
