75 mins United Kingdom Director. Christine Molloy, Joe Lawlor
This highly original and inventive British feature won acclaim from critics such as Jonathan Romney and Mark Kermode. When college girl Joy goes missing, her classmate Helen is hired to portray her final movements in an extensive police reconstruction. As Helen becomes more immersed in the role she begins to realise the marked differences between her own disadvantaged upbringing in a care home and Joy’s once comfortable home life.
This extraordinary debut feature from Christine Molloy and Joe Lawlor is a continuation of themes explored in their Civic Life series of short films (2003-10).
