Film description

Director Lynne Ramsay (You Were Never Really Here) and editor Lucia Zucchetti (Ratcatcher) create a raw, visually striking tale, underpinned by an eclectic soundtrack from the likes of Aphex Twin and The Velvet Underground. 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 She wakens Christmas morning to discover her boyfriend has committed suicide, leaving behind the manuscript of his unpublished novel. Morvern submits the novel to a publisher under her own name, takes his money and heads off to Spain with a friend.
