Sonya Sier, Cerj Murphy, George Vaughn Williams, Catherine Olding
Bad Company kicks off with a class reunion that sees mousy Jane (Sier) rekindling her high school friendship with Lisa (Olding), only to be swiftly yanked back into her abusive relationship with overbearing David (Murphy). Sensing Jane’s unhappiness, Lisa offers her an escape route – the use of her own house while she’s travelling New Zealand. Whilst Jane at first relishes the freedom, she soon attracts unwanted attention from both her jilted boyfriend and a former school admirer. And exactly who is watching her from the attic?
Shorts director King’s debut feature starts off rooted in kitchen sink social drama, before taking a sharp turn into a housebound thriller that holds some favourable echoes of Danny Boyle’s Shallow Grave.
Sier gives a stand-out performance as the repressed Jane, whose chance to gain some independence is curtailed by the questionable actions of those around her. She’s deeply convincing, and makes for a likeable heroine. King keeps his audience guessing throughout as to the motives of his characters – even those of Jane herself – and wrings some nice moments of suspense as the film heads to its climax. Despite treading some familiar territory, the plot holds enough surprises to keep the viewer hooked – and while the denouement may seem a little rushed, it features a suitable cracked punchline to wrap up the proceedings in a satisfying manner.
