REVIEW BY ANDREW GARVEY
Returning to his hometown, the tiny Scottish fishing village of Lobster Cove to live with his grandparents, the ineffectual Jackson MacGregor is understandably miserable after the collapse of his marriage to a lesbian. Long blamed for the demise of the local lobster business, Jackson, an unlikeable and not particularly well-acted character, encounters some very hostile people from his past including an exposition-spouting lobster fisherman with a ludicrous crustacean tattoo.
But, along with his grandparents, there’s at least one friendly face in his old friend Russ. Then a suspicious looking crate washes up on the beach and Russ decides, essentially without thinking, that its mysterious contents will make for a nice cup of herbal tea.
