Summer 1978: an English couple are going through a difficult patch in their relationship, and so decide to spend the summer with their friends in the north of Spain. Hidden away in the Spanish mountains, it seems the perfect setting for Norman (Paddy Considine) and Lucy (Virginia Ledoyen) to get their lives back on track, however, when old friend Paul (Gary Oldman) suggests a walk in the woods it starts a chain of events destined to end in bloodshed. Cultural differences with the local villagers and an accidental discovery in the forest leads to a whirlpool of violence, evoking Straw Dogs in its dark tale of revenge coupled with outstanding performances from its key cast, The Backwoods is a very intense thriller from acclaimed director Koldo Serra.
