Entrancing 1990s coming of age drama adapted by Richard Cameron from his own play, follows a group of young people (Trevor (Tom Varey), Pogo (Esme Creed-Miles) and Malcolm (Angus Imrie) over one summer as a legendary carp focuses their attention in a South Yorkshire mining village. Riveting realism & poetry enhanced by Richard Hawley’s haunting original score. We welcome director Bill Buckhurst for Q&A.
‘Buckhurst’s assured evocation of time and place result in something delightful: a film it seems impossible to not be charmed by.’
Sophie Willard, film.list.co.uk
‘Young cast are pitch-perfect … sweet and, at times, rather sad slice-of-life drama.’
Simran Hans, Observer.
