A bleak, grimey experience from start to finish. Calm with Horses is a dark, sad tale about the families we choose, the families we don't, and the loyalty we may feel to each. Cosmo is fantastic as Arm, the retired boxer who finds himself wrapped up with the Devars criminal family business, while desperately trying to carve a life with his girlfriend and young son. A feeling of unease and dread soaks this movie, with only a few spatters of dark humour throughout to keep the film from feeling too suffocating. Pretty solid stuff.
