Ray & Liz

Dir. Richard Billingham. UK, 2018. 1h 48m. Starring Richard Ashton, Michelle Bonnard, James Eeles, Sam Gittins, James Hinton, Andrew Jefferson-Tierney.

A prisoner in his bedroom, alcoholic father Ray becomes the centre of a bitter dispute between his estranged wife and dodgy neighbour Sid. Turner Prize-nominated photographer Richard Billingham took inspiration from his upbringing in this raw depiction of a working-class family living on the fringes of society in Thatcher’s Britain.

‘It's gruelling at times, but the film is extraordinary and unflinching. And remarkably, it's made with as much love as anger.’ ★★★★ Wendy Ide, The Observer

‘A grubby and unique British classic in the making.’ ★★★★ David Jenkins, Little White Lies
