Previously at the ICA - Films
27 Apr 2014
Joanna Hogg’s impressive debut is both a bold and brutally honest portrait of women of a certain age and a comment on middle-class sensibilities.
Anna (Worth) arrives at the Italian holiday home of an extended bourgeois family. She is the old school friend of matriarch Verena (Roscoe), but is soon distracted from 'the olds' and drawn to the vitality and energetic escapades of the teenagers in the group, and in particular to cocky Oakley (the fast-rising Hiddleston).
It is gradually and subtly revealed that all is not right in Anna's world, and her spending time with the people more than half her age is an attempt to claim something missing in her own life. Combining professional and non-professional actors to credible effect, this is a touching, original and refreshing picture.
