Based on the cult novel by Alan Warner and filmed in and around Oban. Samantha Morton stars in Lynne Ramsay’s second feature. The film is a visually stunning, gritty study of grief. It follows Morvern’s journey from her husbands suicide in the small port town they live. ‘Alwin Kuchler’s beautiful cinematography, and perhaps especially Paul Davies’ outstanding sound design, are all of the very highest calibre, and an inspired fit with the fierce seriousness of Ramsay’s vision and Morton’s terrific performance.’ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
