“Joanna Scanlan gives an outstanding – and terrifying – performance in a superb British indie” ★★★★ - The Guardian

"Refreshingly charismatic and full of its own unique personality" - The Upcoming

Derbyshire director Deborah Haywood’s first feature tells the story of a wickedly unique mother-daughter duo and how growing older might not mean growing up.

Iona (played brilliantly by Lily Newmark) moves to a Midlands town with her eccentric, single mum Lyn (Joanna Scanlan in top form). Determined to fit in with the cool crowd she quickly befriends a group of local girls, while Lyn, used to being her daughter’s best friend, befriends their neighbour. They both struggle with their new-found frenemies, with Iona navigating mean girls and Lyn struggling to get her ladders back! 

Also screening for Midweek Treat
