The Dig (Simon Stone – 2021) A

A perfect sweet little British movie about digging in someone’s backyard for a buried treasure right around the start of World War I. It’s a story about doing something and doing it well since there is so much more to digging an ancient artifact besides just…digging. I loved the beautiful cinematography, nuanced subtle performances all around and solid restrained direction that eschews overdramatization or splash. We will be checking out the Sutton Hoo exhibit if we ever make it back to London.
