“…plays its story simply, sorrowfully, and beautifully.”
—The Austin Chronicle
“Bare of sentimentalism, and oozing raw authenticity from every dirty pore […] evokes the strangeness of the everyday world…”
Following an accidental death, the guilt-ridden child of a working class family in ‘70s Glasgow dreams of a better life in the fields of a new development as the squalor piles mountains high during Scotland’s national garbage strike. An evocative, lyrical tale of hope among the ruins, Lynne Ramsay’s first feature marks not only one of the most important British films of the ‘90s, but the arrival of a striking, new cinematic voice. Newly Restored.
