Description

When self-destructive teenager Sam is suspended from boarding school he returns home to find his English grandmother, Ruth, has moved in. Ruth (beautifully brought to life by the legendary Charlotte Rampling) is a feisty ex-war photographer with a lust for life and a love of the bottle. Their first meeting is awkward, their second violent, and things get worse when Sam finds himself stranded alone with this?funny, rude, fearless and flirtatious woman who can drink him and his friends under the table. A battle of wills ensues which enables Sam to embrace life again, and Ruth to face her own mortality. Filmed in West Auckland, Kiwi Matthew Saville’s first feature length film is an entertaining yet unsettling family drama that breaks down generational boundaries with humour and poignancy.
