Powerful!! and True.
20 May 2014 | by dariahsmethurstSee all my reviews

I watch perhaps 400 films a year. Out of those, I then select a top 10 for my end of year podcasts. I first saw this film a couple of months ago and it already has its place in my top 10 of the year. Directed by Kemal Yildirim, a UK based indie filmmaker. Rose takes us into the true story (now set in a fictionally named town) where bad things happen to a wonderful woman. Brilliant and powerful performances especially by Helen Clifford in the role of 'Rose'. Fantastically and very sensitively directed by Kemal. This film is one to watch, its a tough film to watch but you'll be so glad you saw it. If you haven't been through the things that Rose has, perhaps you know someone who has.
