Night of the Foxes by Tom Haines

A farmer's daughter gets intimate with one of the staff. Then, her dad hears it and grabs a shotgun.

It’s been a long, fruitless summer for a struggling orchard owner in Kent, England, a region renowned for its gardens and greenery.

He’s contending with restless teenagers, and foxes keep marauding his property. He’s losing patience, barely keeping it together — until one fateful night pushes him to the brink.

This short drama drifts through the life of this family of orchard growers, capturing a moment where one man stands at a precipice, waiting for fortunes to change.

Awash in sun-drenched cinematography, director Tom Haines approaches the story in a poetic, elliptical way with subtle performances and elegant camerawork.

“Night of the Foxes” captures the beauty of its pastoral setting, in a striking juxtaposition against its disquieting tone of danger and even menace lurking under the surface. Haunting in its way, it captures how tension can simmer underneath the most perfect of images.
