Win Daphne on DVD

Author: Competitions

To mark the release of Daphne on 22nd January, we’ve been given 3 copies to give away on DVD.

Set in modern day London, Daphne tells the story of a 31-year-old woman (Emily Beecham) who is witty and charismatic. On some days, she seems to have everything going for her; on others she can be self-destructive and scattered. This vibrant contemporary drama shows Daphne navigating the maze of modern life, caught in the rush of working in a big city and the buzz of a busy social life – she is the life of the party but too busy to question how unhappy she is. When Daphne finds herself embroiled in a violent incident, her fragile grasp on her own behavior loosens. The question is whether the emotional incident will help her find a new footing or allow her to sink altogether.

Please note: This competition is open to

Daphne review – sex, drugs and nihilism

This portrait of a hedonistic young London woman on the rampage is artfully drawn but difficult to look at

Daphne is a Londoner in her early 30s who lives her life like an act of war. Intensely inhabited by Emily Beecham, it’s a performance full of jangling discord and serrated edges, capturing a woman at the exact moment when circumstances magnify her already forcefully nihilistic personality.

Even before Daphne, a junior chef in a busy kitchen, witnesses a violent stabbing in a convenience store, she drinks hard, takes drugs and sleeps with whoever she wants. She rebuffs the attempts of anyone to get close to her – she deliberately and repeatedly gets the name of one hapless conquest wrong, before brushing his hand away like dandruff and stomping off into the night. She recoils from her well-meaning mother’s mindfulness DVD as if she has just been handed a bag of cold vomit.

Let’s have more sex in the movies – but please can it be the fun type?

Movies like Daphne depict casual sex among women as a sign of low self-esteem, wholly divorced from desire

Sex, I was informed by the book my mother bought for me when I was 10, meant “that mommy and daddy love each other very much”. But like all the fairytales I read as a child, I’ve since learned that this book presented a somewhat sanitised view of reality. I am now of an age where I know sex can mean many things: validation, forgiveness, boredom. But currently it means only one thing in popular culture when it comes to women: misery.

Yesterday a new film, Daphne, was released in the UK, which tells the story of a young woman, played with extraordinary depth by Emily Beecham, and it is, to use one of Daphne’s own lines, “lovely, in a traumatic sort of way”. But in one regard it feels all too familiar.

Exclusive Interview: Emily Beecham discusses her new film Daphne

Scott Bates chats with Daphne star Emily Beecham

Manchester-born actress Emily Beecham is perhaps most recognised for her role in AMC’s martial-arts themed Western series Into The Badlands, but this weekend the 33-year-old can be seen as the titular lead in Daphne, a Fleabag-esque, London-set drama about an ordinary young woman who begins to reassess her life in the wake of a tragic incident.

I talk to Beecham on the afternoon of opening day – later in the evening she’s doing a Q&A session following a screening of the film in central London, and she’s done plenty of others in the past few weeks, so I try not to give her questions she’s heard too many times. I can’t help but ask her though, what drew her to Daphne? “She’s very relatable, I related to many parts of Daphne, not just myself, but

Daphne and Zoology: this week’s best films in the UK

Modern London is the backdrop for a British debut about a complex young woman, while Kafka and folklore combine in a tale about a zoo worker

This British debut homes in on a complex, intelligent, spiky, often self-destructive young woman, adrift in atomised modern-day London. It’s a drama of small moments (many of them drunken), but it’s above all a calling card for Emily Beecham, who’s never less than compelling.

Daphne review – Emily Beecham takes a stylish plunge into sex, drugs and drink

A big-city thirtysomething, numbed by her endless pursuit of pleasure, finds her life turned around when she witnesses a violent crime

Fortunately or otherwise, this resembles something from TV, the award-winning 2016 comedy Fleabag written by and starring Phoebe Waller-Bridge, all about the unhappy, sexually adventurous and self-destructive woman in London: young, posh, white. In this film – written by Nico Mensinga and directed by Peter Mackie Burns, feature first-timers – it is Daphne, played with a potent and blank kind of restraint by Emily Beecham, who is on her own in the city; she has a demanding job as a chef in a busy restaurant, but Daphne is uninterested in that, her tiresome mother, or her clingy friends from uni. She’s more interested in sex with strangers, coke, alcohol and the pure delicious pleasure of not caring any more about other people or herself. It could be a pleasure that people

The new Fleabag? But will audiences take to Emily Beecham’s Daphne?

There’s a real thirst for complex and less saccharine female roles, star says of the film poised to be an autumn hit

Any film fan who spots Emily Beecham out and about this autumn might well be wary. After watching the actress star in Daphne, the eagerly awaited British film out in cinemas later this month, it would take a steady nerve to approach her for an autograph.

“I’ve had strong reactions to the part. Some people have said to me, ‘Why is she someone who deserves to have her story told?’” Beecham told the Observer.

'God's Own Country' wins top prize at Edinburgh Film Festival
Daphne, Glory also scoop prizes.

Francis Lee’s God’s Own Country has won the top prize at this year’s Edinburgh International Film Festival.

The well-received drama, which premiered in Sundance and had its UK premiere in Edinburgh, took the Michael Powell Award for best British feature film.

The prize was awarded by a jury consisting of composer David Arnold, International Film Festival Rotterdam artistic director Bero Beyer, and Bafta-nominated film and television writer Andrea Gibb.

The jury commented: “We present the Michael Powell Award to God’s Own Country, directed by Francis Lee, a film with a singularity of storytelling and consistency of vision. Assured direction with raw and endearing performances result in a film that has an authenticity that is both tender and brutal, a juxtaposition of landscape and emotion, which explores the question of what it means to be a man.”

On hearing the news, director Francis Lee said: “I am thrilled with this
