"I would watch this film (and 'Ratcatcher') over and over again when I was starting to think about making films. Lynne Ramsay creates images that embed themselves in your mind and refuse to budge. Whenever I think about trying to shoot scenes in nightclubs I think of this film" - Andrew Haigh, director of 'Lean on Pete'
In Lynne Ramsay's ('You Were Never Really Here') second feature based on the novel by Alan Warner, Samantha Morton stars as Morvern Callar, a young woman in a small port town in Scotland. She wakens Christmas morning to discover her boyfriend has committed suicide, leaving the manuscript of his unpublished novel behind. She erases his name, puts hers on the novel, and goes to Ibiza, where she sells it as her own work.
