Director: Charlotte Regan
Cast: Harris Dickinson, Lola Campbell, Alin Uzun
12-year-old Georgie is determined to fend for herself following the death of her mother Vicky. She lies to teachers and social workers in a bid to keep under the radar. That precarious balance is upset when her estranged dad Jason suddenly arrives back from Ibiza to look after her. Their relationship is initially hostile, but father and daughter soon discover their reluctant reunion might be exactly what they each needed.
Charlotte Regan’s acclaimed debut feature is a welcome shot in the arm for British indie filmmaking. While it tackles some emotive and potentially bleak subject matter, it does so with real humour, warmth and stylistic invention. The lead performances from Harris Dickinson and young Lola Campbell are particularly delightful.
