Played at the London Film Festival in 2019. I have to say that I have never come across Joanna Scanlan before but in this I thought her performance was terrific. Sometimes in the film there isn’t much dialogue but watching her facial expressions tells you everything you need to know. I very much enjoyed the musical score in this film. The main themes in this are betrayal and loss. I found this to be a very moving film. At the Bafta Awards in 2022 this won for Leading Actress (Joanna Scanlan).
