;The Law of Enclosures;
The characters played by Sarah Polley and Brendan Fletcher are inexplicably and impossibly stuck in the year 1991. They are stuck in the same jobs and fashions, stuck with the same scars and habits, and stuck watching the same thing on television day in and day out. For 40 years, they have been prisoners of their marriage. Meanwhile the Gulf War unfolds on television from the moment they meet until the hour of their death. By cutting back and forth between their first and last years together, The Law of Enclosures paints a portrait of a couple blind to the love that binds them, but who yearn for – and finally rediscover – a grace they thought they’d lost forever. Brilliant in every facet, The Law of Enclosures once again illustrates Greyson’s impeccable ability to capture the sublime, the ridiculous and the passionate moments at the essence of life.
