Film Food for thought
13 October 2019 | by helenbancroftmorrisSee all my reviews

I saw this debut film at the London Film Festival 2019. After a childhood spent, without question, watching many punch and judy shows in the 70's and 80's at various seaside towns, Mirrah now in 2019 unpicks the historical characters we were presented with unquestioningly during childhood. Great work. Thought provoking fictional narrative. 💜💚.
