Gentrification is the enemy in Bait, Mark Jenkin’s black and white drama set on Cornwall’s fishing coast. The philosophical and personal conflict between the local fishing industry and posh holiday homeowners brews in a stifling, terse atmosphere. This film is gorgeous to look at. Cornwall – a stunning region regardless – takes on a haunting, severe beauty when shot on monochrome film.
