"A tender tale with two brilliant leads, and one of Barnard’s finest films to date."—Cheyenne Bunsie, Little White Lies

"Unusually for a film in this tradition, it makes almost no economic or political references either, staying committed to its own world. The optimism is endearing."—David Sexton, New Statesman

"A pair of wonderfully winning performances from Claire Rushbrook and Adeel Akhtar lie at the heart of this unexpectedly warm and typically compelling drama from British writer-director Clio Barnard."—Mark Kermode, Observer UK

Both lonely for different reasons, Ali and Ava meet through their shared affection for Sofia, the 6-year-old child of Ali's Slovakian tenants, whom Aava teaches. Ali finds comfort in Ava's warmth and kindness and Ava finds Ali's complexity and humor irresistible. Over a lunar month, sparks fly and a deep connection begins to grow. However, the legacy of Ava's past relationship and Ali's emotional turmoil at the breakdown of his marriage begins to overshadow their newfound passion.
