svg-play Trailer

England: 1648 AD. A small group of deserters flee from a raging battle through an overgrown field. They are captured by two men: O'Neil and Cutler. O'Neil (Michael Smiley), an alchemist, forces the group to aid him in his search to find a hidden treasure that he believes is buried in the field. Crossing a vast mushroom circle, which provides their first meal, the group quickly descend into a chaos of arguments, fighting and paranoia, and they slowly become victim to the terrifying energies trapped inside the field. A FIELD IN ENGLAND is a psychedelic trip into magic and madness from Ben Wheatley – award-winning director of KILL LIST and SIGHTSEERS.

A group of English Civil War soldiers are captured by an alchemist and fall victim to violent and nightmarish forces.

Cast: Julian Barratt, Peter Ferdinando, Richard Glover, Reece Shearsmith, Michael Smiley

A really excellent piece of filmmaking I've heard is meant to be an allegory for a civil war that was going on at the time during which the film is set. Someone more learned in history than i am should confirm.

Great! Very absorbing and just plain weird. Also very funny at times. Loved the soundtrack. I read one interpretation of this film as everything taking place in Whitehead's mind and loved that idea.
