Details

Sinead Matthews and breakout star Liv Hill shared the top acting prize at Edinburgh International Film Festival 2018 for their brilliant performances in this funny and moving drama. Between being bullied at school, put upon by her overbearing boss at the local arcade and having to look after her younger brother, sister and manic-depressive mother, life isn’t easy for 15-year-old Sarah Taylor. However, when Sarah’s drama teacher channels her ferocious and volatile energies in to a stand-up comedy routine for the graduation showcase, Sarah discovers that she may have a hidden talent. As her love for comedy grows and the showcase draws nearer, the delicate balance in Sarah’s life becomes increasingly difficult to maintain. Little by little the walls start to close in, ultimately forcing her to choose between her responsibilities as a carer and her newfound passion for comedy.

Followed by a Q&A with director and co-writer James Gardner.
