Here And Now
Continuing Keswick Film Club's support for new British talent, we have two very different films which we hope will show the range of films being produced today.
Lisle Turner's first film is a gentle town-girl-meets-country-boy drama set in the Wye Valley. He uses this background to simply observe their meeting.
From Peter Bradshaw's review in the Guardian - '17-year-old Grace, a stroppy urban teen is forced by her parents to go with them on a supposedly restorative holiday. Grace is furious at being dragged away from her friends to somewhere she will get no mobile reception, and she senses, correctly, that the trip is designed to help her parents' relationship with each other, but not with her. But then in this alien world of concreteless unsignposted lanes she meets Say a young guy with emotional issues not far from her own, and something flowers between them'.
Both Lisle Turner and one of the stars, will be available for a Q&A after the film.
“An intelligent and attractive film. An impressive Debut feature from writer-director Lisle Turner that's well acted”
“Lisle turner manages to capture both the rhythms Of rural life and the sharp pangs of adolescence With a quiet assurance. Modest but moving”
