Filming in sequence over the course of five years, the inventive and prolific director of 24 Hour Party People and The Trip crafts a quietly moving tale of a mother’s struggles to keep her family together during her husband’s long jail sentence. Casting real-life siblings as the children and focusing on the strains of daily life—complicated by the rare prison visit—the film becomes a haunting meditation on endurance and the irrevocable passing of time.

106 Minutes

"Quietly brilliant, easily one of the best British films of another great success for the endlessly creative Winterbottom."
- The Guardian
