Documentary and fiction are seamlessly blended in Clio Barnard’s critically-acclaimed debut feature. Taking an innovative approach to dramatization, the film uses actors lip-syncing to real-life interviews to explore the troubled life of Bradford playwright Andrea Dunbar, best known for her play, Rita, Sue and Bob Too.

Archival footage is effectively incorporated, interwoven with a live staging of her play, The Arbor. BAFTA-nominated for Outstanding Debut by a British Director and winner of the Sheffield Doc/Fest Innovation Award in 2010 and Best New Documentary Filmmaker at Tribeca Film Festival, New York.
