True life story of mothers and daughters, secrets and family ties....
17 October 2017 | by anniewrayukSee all my reviews

This is a thoughtful and thought provoking film. Beautifully shot, acted and delivered in such a way that I actually felt my toes curl occasionally (a first!). This together with real heartfelt pain, recognising many of the elements that can make the mother / daughter relationship so very brittle and traumatic. Progress to the further generational mix and you have one very powerful film, that genuinely left me unable to properly converse at the end. The hauntingly enigmatic lament of Philip Selway's score will stay with me for a long and indulgent time. The combination is a resonant sensory masterpiece, and I urge you to see it.
