Movie Info

Eileen is a mother of two children, who are both about to fly the nest. Summer stretches out in front of the family who, except for Eileen, have plans to go abroad, to a festival, to their dad's wedding. A new relationship suddenly comes into her life, and briefly she blooms. However Bill the new boyfriend, a pot smoking ex cricketer has his own problems. Their fling opens the door to insecurity and paranoia for Eileen, and one day under the guise of celebrating her new "love" she has a drink. Once she starts she doesn't stop... The film treads a constant line between darkness and humour as it moves from its beginning in a sedate suburban cricket club to its conclusion at a music festival. -- (C) Official Site

Top Critic
