Initially released during the first lockdown and into cinemas briefly during the first opening up, Claire Oakley’s Make Up is one of the best debut features for a long time. Director Claire Oakley’s tale of sexual intrigue and possible ghostly goings on at an out of season caravan park is a film best experienced on the big screen. No small part of this is due to the excellent lead performance from Derby’s Molly Windsor.
Molly will be joining us to talk about the film and her career so far from her break as a child actor in Samantha Morton’s The Unloved (2009), her standout performance in Three Girls (2017) and the current show Traces whose second series is due out soon.
