WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

When lockdown restrictions force the cast and crew of a film set to isolate alone in their homes, several members experience feelings of regret, loneliness, and lack of meaning in their lives…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

Shot in crisp black-and-white, this emotional British drama explores the psychological effects of the 2020 COVID-19 lockdowns amongst film production crews, in assumedly far better ways than the awful Netflix “comedy” The Bubble did.

WHERE CAN I FIND IT?
