Dir. Peter Mackie Burns. UK, 2017. 1h 28m. Emily Beecham, Geraldine James, Tom Vaughan-Lawlor, Nathaniel Martello-White, Osy Ikhile, Sinead Matthews, Ryan McParland.

A young women stuck in a rut of dead-end jobs and deadbeat relationships decides to change her hedonistic lifestyle after saving a stranger’s life. Emily Beecham gives a brilliantly tragicomic lead performance in this sharp-tongued misanthropic comedy.

'A film of compassion and soul, with a protagonist at its heart who's sometimes hard to like but easy to adore.’ ★★★★ Jamie Dunn, The Skinny

’Beecham’s combustable, subtly alienating and hopefully star-making central turn gives this flighty film its wings.’ David Jenkins, Little White Lies
