A compelling viewing event
26 September 2019 | by justinkhaywardSee all my reviews

I was lucky enough to see this film at the Raindance Film Festival this week. It's a beautifully crafted work dealing with a difficult subject with care and compassion. As a debut feature film, Marc has created an immersive world which most of us will never see from inside, which lays out the stark brutality of homelessness and the breadth of reasons as to why this occurs. Whilst not perfect, it's a satisfying and emotional journey, made all the more compelling by the gorgeous cinematography, thoughtful score, excellent performances and great use of location. Huge congratulations to Marc and the team for bringing this important film to the cinema, and raising all of the money himself when no studio thought it would have an audience.

Disclaimer: I backed the production of the film but I do not get any financial compensation.
