Movie Info

Sarah is a recently widowed young mother. Her son Ben has been an elective mute since the day he witnessed his father being knifed to death on their estate. Police have done nothing to catch the killer, categorizing his death as a falling out amongst thieves. Then Tito literally bursts into Sarah's world. He's ripped off drug-dealers and decides to stash the stolen drugs in her flat. Frightened senseless, Sarah wants nothing to do with this but caught between a rock and a hard place, she sees an opportunity to use Tito to gain information about what might have happened to her husband with the hope of eventually returning to some semblance of a normal life.

  • Pastoll invests time in his housing-estate locations in Belgium and Northern Ireland - without going fully into Ken Loach mode - and builds tension deftly with the aid of Matthew Pusti's menacing score.

  • Sarah is the good woman of the title - although along the way she will break bad with a vengeance - and she is 'hard to find' only in the sense that she has not yet fully emerged.
