A young mother escapes her abusive husband and fights back against a broken housing system. She sets out to build her own home and in the process rebuilds her life and re-discovers herself.

In Detail

Sensitively directed by Phyllida Lloyd and brought to life by co-writer Clare Dunne's starring performance, ‘Herself’ charts one woman's journey with empathy and grace.

Using all her ingenuity to make her ambitious dream a reality, Sandra draws together a community to lend a helping hand to build her house and ultimately recover her own sense of self. It's filled with touching scenes that reflect a mother's resilient devotion to her children as she strives to shape a better life. The script is smart enough to avoid the usual feelgood cliches and sentimental flourishes. Claire Dunne’s performance as the beleaguered mother is grittily authentic.
