A Puritan woman's life is changed forever by a mysterious couple and a ruthless Sheriff.


Why watch this film?

An intense period drama with few resources but a lot of power behind its performances. Set in 1657, Fanny Lye Deliver'd follows a woman (Maxine Peake, from Black Mirror and The Theory of Everything) living in a repressed Puritan marriage. But the arrival of a young couple pursued by a ruthless Sheriff (Charles Dance, from Game of Thrones) changes her life forever and opens up new pathways of possibilities, albeit at a great personal cost. This is a unique production that blends drama and some terror with big ideas about religion and female repression, with plenty of intrigue and flashes of stunning violence that won't leave you indifferent.
