The growing friendship between two women as they hit the road in an electric car looking for endings and reconciliation.★★★★ Peter Bradshaw - The Guardian
In a last-ditch mission to get recognition for her talent, Audrey Amiss (Monica Dolan), a non-conformist, forgotten artist persuades her psychiatric nurse Sandra (Kelly Macdonald) to take her on a road trip back to where her story began – but with so many deviations into the past along the way, will they ever make it?
With natural sympathy and warmth, film-maker Carol Morley has created this likable, generous, imaginative response to the work of this neglected Sunderland-born artist. Amiss’s work is held in an archive at the Wellcome Collection in London, where Morley discovered the artist’s passport with its scribbled entry under Occupation: “Typist Artist Pirate King.”
We are delighted to welcome Carol Morley and Monica Dolan for a Q&A after the Saturday Screening.
