Follows aging novelist Vida Winter, who enlists a young writer to finally tell the story of her life including her mysterious childhood spent in Angelfield House, which burned to the ground when she was a teenager.
An elderly Margaret Thatcher talks to the imagined presence of her recently deceased husband as she struggles to come to terms with his death while scenes from her past life, from girlhood to British prime minister, intervene.
Richard E. Grant
I found this to be quite a quirky short film, with high tension and interesting ideas. The acting of the three sixteen year old girls wasn't the best, but still represented a realistic idea of today's youth. The teacher played the part well, although towards the end faltered slightly, in that her acting became less convincing after the climax of drama. The themes explored were deep, and definitely warrant an analysis and another few run-through of the film. The plot is topical, and the actions of the characters questionable, especially towards the end, and this film succeeds in engaging the mind enough to want to know what could happen next.
