Martin Ward is a cove fisherman, without a boat. His brother Steven has re-purposed their father’s vessel as a tourist tripper, driving a wedge between the brothers. With their childhood home now a get-away for London money, Martin is displaced to the estate above the picturesque harbor. As his struggle to restore the family to their traditional place creates increasing friction with tourists and locals alike, a tragedy at the heart of the family changes his world. Captured in Cornwall, this stark story is rooted in local culture and community, capturing how these marginal places are facing up to a changing world. From writer / director Mark Jenkin and Early Day FilmsBAIT is a hand-crafted monochrome expression of a life under threat.

”One of the defining British films of the decade.” “A genuine modern masterpiece”

”Ravishing cinema.”
