DIR: CLIO BARNARD | UK 2021 | 94 MIN | CERT 15A

Ali, a British Pakistani working-class landlord and music enthusiast, is trying to keep his marriage separation secret from his extended family. When he meets Irish-born teacher and single mother Ava, an unexpected romance develops. The latest film from UK writer-director Clio Barnard (The Selfish Giant) is a warm, charming exploration of a midlife love affair that develops in Bradford.

“★ ★ ★ ★ … an understated triumph … Barnard’s film is an essay in acceptance and love.” - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, Cannes Film Festival 2021
