Direct from the 43rd Cleveland Int’l Film Festival!
United Kingdom | 2018 | Richard Billingham
In one of the most acclaimed movies of the past year, British artist and photographer Richard Billingham re-creates and dramatizes his troubled childhood during the Thatcher era, when he lived in a West Midlands council flat with his alcoholic father Ray, overweight, chain-smoking mother Liz, and younger brother Jason. As harsh and harrowing as it is blackly funny and bleakly beautiful, Billingham’s feature debut (shot on 16mm color film) is a heartfelt, emotional kitchen sink drama. Shown at this year’s Cleveland Int’l Film Festival. “Formally arresting and rigorous, though not at the expense of its direct emotional force.” –Variety. DCP. 108 min.
