This month we will be screening Juniper. Sam has been on a self-destructive spiral that could lead to his death. He returns home from boarding school to find his wheelchair-bound English grandmother, Ruth, has moved in. Ruth is an ex-war photographer with a lust for life and a love of the bottle. Sam soon finds himself profoundly confronted by her alcoholic wit and chutzpah. Their first meeting is awkward; their second violent. Things get worse when Sam finds himself stranded alone with her and her nurse, Sarah, for the school holidays. Both strong-willed characters a battle of supremacy ensues, enabling Sam to embrace life again and Ruth to face her mortality.
Please note films may contain mature subject matters and are intended for an older audience.
