"One of the best films about London living I can recently recall" ★★★★ - Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph


Daphne has ‘sort of given up on people’ as she goes through the motions of her busy life, working as a cook in a London restaurant and through a series of drug fuelled hook ups. She resists genuine intimacy in her few friendships and rejects her mother Rita’s attempts to engage. 

When she witnesses a violent robbery, she’s thrown into chaos and finally begins to confront the person she’s become. 

Cut from the same ironic, confessional cloth as Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s BBC series Fleabag, Daphne offers us a female protagonist who can be as fiercely unlikeable as she is compelling to watch.
