Movie Synopsis & Review

England, 1665. A tragedy takes place on a farm dispersed in the countryside: Joseph ( Joe Anderson ), after discovering he has contracted the plague, hangs himself from a tree on the edge of his property. It is his wife, the beautiful and faithful Grace Haverstock ( Charlotte Kirk ), who finds the corpse still dangling from the rope and buries it in a grave she dug in the pouring rain. Now the woman is left alone and with a baby girl to feed.

Without the protection of her husband, the local squire, the slimy and stereotypical Pendleton ( Steven Waddington ), starts making a series of unwanted advances and, when she refuses, he accuses her of witchcraft. A trial follows with a lot of Inquisitor, and not just any one, but the famous Moorcroft ( Sean Pertwee ), renowned throughout the area for his extreme methods and his rigor. He will bend the will of stubborn and resolute Grace and make her confess at any cost to a sin she knows she has not committed.

The Reckoning is a diversion from start to finish and taking it seriously would be absurd, but despite its two hours it leaves the feeling of finding ourselves before the summary of something much longer since there are characters that come and go, a very forced flashback with it. origin of a character, plots that start and then disappear … But the further the story moves away from the realistic, the funnier it is and the more it is noted to enjoy Marshall .
