Movie or TV Series Plot
The American director Sam Peckinpah is known as the creator of a series of gritty western stories such as Highland Ride, The Wild Bunch, Junior Bonner and the impressive dramas Escape, Osterman's Weekend. Among his most impressive films is The Scarecrows (1971), for which he wrote the screenplay based on a book by writer Gordon Williams.
David, a maths teacher, arrives from America with his young wife Amy in her home town on the coast of England. Together they settle in a derelict and somewhat run-down house. While David wants to finish his work tasks in peace, Amy is bored and looking for any opportunity for a change. That's why she decides to renovate the old garage. Among the construction workers, she meets her former suitors again after many years and can't quite deny her frivolity. One day the men invite David to go hunting and in his absence Amy is raped... Director Sam Peckinpah offers a disturbing study of the violence hidden deep inside a peaceful individual who, at a critical moment, is forced to fight for bare survival. He subtly achieves the power and impact of the narrative through the subtle use of slow motion and fast editing, especially in the story's wild and gritty conclusion.
The movie Straw Dogs was filmed at the very western tip of England, in the town of Saint Buryan. The main location - the farm - is Tor Noon, Solomon's Island Holiday Cottage, Morvah, Penzance.
