Trivia

Karen Gillan explained to Screen that she was forced to change the original title of the film. "The title is currently in limbo", she said. "Basically we had a title [Tupperware Party] and then realized that it was a brand name. That's actually the name of the company that makes those tubs, so currently we're deciding on a new title. I'm kind of digging the idea that we have to figure out a new title. I do believe that obstacles in creative situations often result in a better idea so I'm hoping that's the case here!" See more »

Film Stays With You...Impressive
9 July 2018 | by Jackie_lovmoviesSee all my reviews

This movie really resonated with me because several of the topics are very personal to my life. I have always liked Karen in her films, but this project took my admiration to a much higher respected level. She is now a filmmaker, not just an actress. I later found out (went into the festival screening not knowing she was both director and scriptwriter) this was her directorial debut. Scottish film, but all the topics discussed cross over to other countries, so don't think this is just a UK film being shown in the US. Being someone that has been close to several of the topics in this movie had a real impact on me personally...... the movie really stayed on my mind for weeks. This film needs to be seen by people, it is impacts to the viewer. Also, a film I can't wait to buy AFTER I see it again on the big screen, it's one you need to see several times. Karen, for a first time director, did an amazing job. I enjoyed the flow of the film in how it looks back in time about several of the facts. The scenes on the train bridge are amazing and so well done. I was blown away. Cool soundtrack! Karen what is next for you in the directing chair? Can't wait to find out.
