About the Film
Anna is stuck: she’s approaching 30, living like a hermit in her mum’s garden shed and wondering why the suffragettes ever bothered. She spends her days making videos using her thumbs as actors – thumbs that bicker about things like whether Yogi Bear is a moral or existential nihilist. But Anna doesn’t show these videos to anyone and no one knows what they are for. A week before her birthday her Mum serves her an ultimatum – she needs to move out of the shed, get a haircut that doesn’t put her gender in question and stop dressing like a homeless teenager. Naturally, Anna tells her Mum to back the f-off. However, when her school friend comes to visit, Anna’s self-imposed isolation becomes impossible to maintain. Soon she is entangled with a troubled eight year old boy obsessed with Westerns, and the local estate agent whose awkward interpersonal skills continually undermine his attempts to seduce her.
Funny, tender and brilliantly made
Saw this was on at local cinema so took the chance to watch it on on ITunes. It's an amazing multi-layered story of bereavement and geeky 80's references. Love it.
A truly brilliant Bristish film with magnificent performances especially Jodie W. - moving, funny - I was totally taken by the film - watch it - you must - if the world was a fair place it should be Oscar material x
Really enjoyed it
It's feel good, but not in a conventional way. Really funny too.
