A powerful film that tells of the complexity and vulnerability of adolescence and parental love. Mia who has never received any love from her mother, learns how to accept love from a father she has never had.
Evoking the works of Mike Leigh and Ken Loach, Andrea Arnold paints a sympathetic telling with her iconic earthy, yet poetic sensibility, taking elements of tough social-realism to create an unsettlingly tale.
