Common is a convoluted tale of Mary, a young woman presumed dead yet returns to her village from the hellish town of London. Mary played by Anne-Marie Duff, is a clairvoyant and a little manipulative. She’s trying to get Laura, her lost lover back from the clutches of Laura’s brother King, who has carnal feelings towards his sister. The harvest has not been going well either and friction is rising amongst the villagers. Lesbians, intersected with potential incest, with a talking crow thrown into two hours of ambiguous storytelling, painfully fails to hit the mark.
