I've wanted to watch this directorial debut from Charlotte Wells for a while as it got such great write ups when it was released.

It's about the relationship between 11 year old Sophie and her father, Callum and the private melancholy of a holiday they took together twenty years earlier.


I have to admit to being frustrated when the film ended, feeling cheated out of neat closure. But the ending really lingers and in the moments after, reflecting on what I'd just watched, I realised how staggeringly subtle, heart-breaking and brilliant it is.
