Jake is an introvert, illiterate, and unable to hold down a basic job. Unbeknown to those around him, however, he is intelligent and ingenious - strengths he uses to secretly observe his neighbour, Alice, the woman he loves. But Alice lives with her boyfriend, Guy, a small-time criminal and drug pusher. Events escalate when Jake crosses the line from Alice's voyeur to direct manipulation of Guy's illicit dealings. Things come to a head when Alice is assaulted by Guy and his accomplice. After an unconvincing appeal to the Police, Jake decides to rescue Alice in his own ingenious, yet ultimately dangerous, way. Written by Caroline Spence

Original and Brilliant
16 November 2018 | by SgtPepper1611See all my reviews

Such an original idea for a film, wonderfully executed by a phenomenal cast that brinsg the story to life. A funny, tense and moving exploration of loneliness, love and bravery. You become invested in the characters and desperately want Jake and Alice to win. Just when you think you have it sussed, it takes a totally different twist that leaves you on the edge of your seat. The character of Jake is perfectly portrayed and you become aware that he has quiet and misunderstood genius. Alice is so fantastically played too, and you feel her isolation and vulnarebaility whilst also admiring her courage and tenacity. A truly fantastic film that gives Indie Film it's brilliant and original name. A film to be proud of.
