The comedy follows Sam, as her life is turned upside down on a big night out. When reunited with her old college friends, Sam is forced to re-evaluate her life and constructs an elaborate façade in order to convince herself and her friends that she has it all. But once her dysfunctional yet devoted trio of best mates intervene, her carefully crafted charade begins to crumble amidst the shots, cigarettes, ciders and toilet transgressions. Faced with some very harsh realities, Sam must struggle to remain true to herself and reassess exactly what she wants from life. Written by P.SMURF

Great film
7 October 2014 | by sarcastic_aspirationsSee all my reviews

I absolutely love this film.

Original, relevant, and honest. Acting is superb, Sheridan Smith shines as per. It's so relatable too; I have been these girls, my friends have been these girls. It was truly refreshing to watch something that I can see myself in.

The feeling of the club can feel claustrophobic, but then again isn't it meant to? With the setting confined to the club and in particular the club toilets for the majority of the film the characters are forced to confront themselves, seen through multiple mirror and toilet cubicle shots. The noise and bustle of the club is juxtaposed with the quiet reflection of the ladies toilets. In this quiet their honest selves are forced to come out and the powder room becomes the place of truth and reflection.

All in all, an enjoyable film because it's so honest.
