The screening on Thursday 27 October will be captioned.
Set in rural New Zealand in the 1990s, Matthew J. Saville’s feature debut explores the relationship between a self-destructive adolescent and his alcoholic grandmother (played by Charlotte Rampling). When 17-year-old Sam (George Ferrier) is thrown out of boarding school, he could have never imagined his days would soon be filled with an even more laborious task: caring for Ruth (Rampling), his estranged alcoholic grandmother who is temporarily immobilised after a domestic accident.Condemned to proximity, the antagonistic duo slowly wears each other down, finding common ground and the potential for a tender new relationship in this double-edged examination of grief that sees Rampling give one of her best recent performances.
