Super close Mother LYN and daughter IONA (Dafty One and Dafty Two) are excited for their new life in a new town. Determined to make a success of things after a tricky start, Iona becomes 'best friends' with KEELY, STACEY and CHELSEA. Used to being Iona's bestie herself, Lyn feels left out. So Lyn also makes friends with BELINDA, her neighbour. As much as Lyn and Iona pretend to each other that things are going great, things aren't going great for either of them. Iona struggles with the girls, who act more like frenemies than friends, and Belinda won't give Lyn her stepladders back. Both Mother and Daughter retreat into fantasy and lies.
Let's just start by saying that Pin Cushion isn't a happy movie. You won't have a good feeling after watching it. Or you must be a bully yourself and you have no clue what for a lowlife you are yourself. The story is about bullying, about not fitting in. There is the bullying of a young innocent girl that does her best trying to fit in, and there is the bullying by adults towards a woman that looks differently. The acting is good as well as the filming. The story is worth watching, but just don't expect some kind of justice or feelgood moment as it is a sad movie.
