Dirty God Rated 15

Dirty God

Dir. Sacha Polak. UK, 2019. 1h 44m. Starring Vicky Knight, Eliza Brady-Girard, Rebecca Stone, Dana Marineci, Karl Jackson, Jake Wheeldon.

Following a violent acid attack which leaves her scarred, a young mother in London strives to reclaim her life and some sense of normality. A frank but sensitively told character study featuring a powerful breakout role from newcomer Vicky Knight, who was badly burned as a child.

‘An astonishingly vibrant and engaging performance by feature first-timer Vicky Knight drives this urgent, passionate drama from Dutch film-maker Sacha Polak.’ ★★★★ Mark Kermode, The Observer

‘In a frank but sensitive way, [Sacha] Polak delves into areas that most other filmmakers would be far too timid to go near.’ ★★★★ Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent
