My Lonely Me is the kind of film that could quickly slide into parody; the ideas explored within by writer and director Joe Scott are ripe for send-up and would easily be ridiculous in the wrong hands. Thankfully they are handled with precision here and the director perfectly balances an interesting script and a solid cast that ultimately lend the film credibility and a grounding that allow it to jump off in unexpected directions.
Sabrina Dickens (as Reiga) does damaged vulnerability with aplomb, giving the audience an ‘in’ to events. A young girl who is experiencing flashbacks, hallucinations and half-remembered events that have damaged her; seemingly beyond repair and her attempts to unravel them thrust her into a whirlwind of craziness.
There are musical sequences here that are tastefully handled and beautifully shot. One such scene features some extremely beautiful violin and vocal work – so much so that I found myself watching it over and over again. John Altman, most famous for his role as ‘Nasty’ Nick Cotton in Eastenders, pops up as Reiga’s psychiatrist; it is a brilliant piece of casting, once the expectation of hearing him say “Awight, Ma” slips away.
This is Memento meets The Wizard of Oz for millennials. An interesting experiment in subverting genre expectations with a striking soundtrack. Enjoy it with the volume turned all the way up.

My Lonely Me
My Lonely Me is a very interesting film about a young girl who runs away at the age of 7 to a convent. It keeps you on the edge of your seat trying to figure what actually happened.
It makes you laugh and cry, every step along her journey to find out the truth about her family.
It's a great suspense thriller, with a musical twist, it truly is one of my favourite films & I recommend it to everyone.
Sabrina Dickens, John Altman & the rest of the cast were incredible, thank you for taking us on this amazing journey.
