  • Description

    Based on Bruce Chatwin’s award-winning novel, On the Black Hill is an evocative depiction of the life of a rural farming family, set in the beautiful Welsh border country.

     

    Starring Bob Peck (Jurassic Park, Edge of Darkness) and Gemma Jones (Bridget Jones Diary, Radiator) as an embittered married couple, the film charts their efforts to raise identical twin brothers in the turbulent early years of the 20th century. Sharing a unique bond, the brothers journey through eight decades of life, death and hardship together, all the while tied to the land on which they were raised.

     

    Featuring stunning photography and steeped in authentic rural imagery, On the Black Hill has been described as one of the best British films of the 1980s.
