A gentle and moving film set between a sleepy English village and the hustle and bustle of Moscow. The story follows Marina, bored with her mundane life as wife and mother, on her journey towards fulfilment both in love and in her career. Marina is a writer who gets an opportunity to publish her work in Moscow. A brief chance encounter with a fellow Russian throws her love life in disarray. Faced with a dilemma and running a risk of losing all in the process, she makes an unpredictable choice to create the best possible future for herself. This film is beautifully shot, engaging and relevant. The main character delivers an outstanding performance. Catch it if you can.
