Charlotte Regan’s crowd-pleaser about the reunion between a father and his young daughter.
Dir. Charlotte Regan / United Kingdom / 2023 / English
Georgie (Lola Campbell) is perfectly happy refusing to accept that her mum has passed away. She makes do by herself in her mum’s flat, with some light hustling and help from the neighbours. That is, until her estranged dad Jason (Harris Dickinson) shows up to, like, take care of her or something. Slowly, tenderly, they find their footing with each other as they reconcile Georgie’s grief and Jason’s embrace of fatherhood. Charlotte Regan’s short films signalled a talent to watch; her debut feature confirms her uncanny ability to convey big emotions out of small moments.
