Amazon have released the official trailer for the upcoming Irish drama Herself.
The official synopsis for the film is as follows:
Single-mother Sandra escapes her abusive partner with her two young children, only to find herself trapped in temporary accommodation. After months of struggling, she draws inspiration from one of her daughter’s bedtime stories and hits upon the idea of self-building an affordable home. She finds an architect who provides her with plans and is offered land by Peggy, a woman she cleans for. Aido, a building contractor, appears willing to help too. But as her past rears its head, in the form of Gary, her possessive ex, and as bureaucrats fight back against her independent spirit, will Sandra be able to rebuild her life from the ground up?
The film was a pleasant surprise when I caught it during BFI London Film Festival and in the review I recommend that people see it whenever they can and thankfully in the new year they can on Amazon Prime.
The film is directed by Phylida Lloyd and stars Clare Dunne, Harriet Walter, Conleth Hill, Molly McCann, Ruby Rose O’Hara, Cathy Belton, Rebecca O’Mara, Daniel Ryan, Ericka Roe, Ian Lloyd Anderson, Sean Duggan, Aaron Lockhart, Anita Petry and Dmitry Vinokurov.
Herself will be available to watch on Amazon Prime on the 8th January 2021.
