Samantha Morton's directorial debut is a powerful drama about a young girl growing up in a children's home. Working alongside acclaimed writer Tony Grisoni, Morton has created a fictional script that gives an honest and intimate child's-eye view of the care system in the UK. Filmed in Morton's hometown of Nottingham, the two young leads - Molly Windsor as Lucy, and Lauren Socha as Lauren - were cast through a series of open auditions held across Nottingham schools, drama groups and at The Television Workshop, which Morton herself attended. An ICA Films Release.
We’re pleased to welcome director Samantha Morton for a post-screening discussion with Sight and Sound editor Nick James.
