Red Road 2006 18

109 mins United Kingdom Director. Andrea Arnold

Jackie (Kate Dickie) is a CCTV operator and gets a perverse satisfaction from observing the lives of other; until one day a man from her past appears on her monitors - one whom she never wanted to see again. Now she has no alternative but to confront both the man, and the demons inside herself.

Andrea Arnold's (Fish Tank, Wuthering Heights) superb debut feature was the first in a planned trilogy of Scotland-set films produced by Lars Von Trier’s Zentropa company. The winners of numerous awards including major prizes at Cannes and the BFI London Film Festival, it was also voted one of the best British films of the last 25 years in a poll conducted by The Observer’s Film Quarterly.
