Besties and beasties

Described by Screen Daily as “an all-girl fairy tale” this debut feature from Deborah Haywood had the rare honour of being named opening film for Critics’ Week at Venice. Iona and her mum Lyn are a pair of outsiders, clinging to each other and to the fragile little bubbles of brightly coloured cuteness with which they surround themselves. Iona starts at a new school where she desperately wants to fit in, and she throws herself into the social world of her teenage girl peer group. What could possibly go wrong?
