Winner of Un Certain Regard in Cannes 2023, Molly Manning Walker’s feature debut is an absolute knockout; extremely daring yet subtle, exploring the complexities of sex, consent and relationships.

Tara (Mia McKenna-Bruce), Skye (Lara Peake) and Em (Enva Lewis) are off on the summer holiday of their dreams; a mixture of sun, sea and non-stop partying. When they meet another threesome of young holidaymakers, it looks like romance may be on the cards. They become fast friends and soon begin to pair off, but things take a dark turn when the young women are separated.

Writer/director Manning Walker’s feature debut is incredibly authentic and well-observed, fresh and original, subtle yet sharp, with unconventional, unexpected, unrelenting and insightful direction. McKenna-Bruce is phenomenal as Tara, a young woman who is vulnerable and chaotic, yet lively and magnetic.
