Ken Loach meets Mamma Mia in this touching drama from director Phyllida Lloyd which deftly balances gritty social realism with a life affirming story of female empowerment. Claire is a single mother who has left her abusive ex-husband and is living in cramped temporary accommodation with her two children. With little help from the authorities, she takes inspiration from one of her daughter’s bedtime stories and sets out to build a new home from scratch. With the help of a new community of friends, she battles bureaucracy and her possessive ex to build not just a house, but a new future and sense of self-worth.
Dir: Phyllida Lloyd. Cast: Clare Dunne, Harriet Walter, Ian Lloyd Anderson
