Aleem Khan / UK 2021 / 89 min / Cert 12A
Set in the port of Dover, Mary Hussain (Joanna Scanlan), finds herself a widow following the unexpected death of her husband Ahmed (Nassar Memarzia). A day after the burial she discovers a secret, whilst tidying his things in their Dover home and then sets off to uncover the truth just 21 mies across the Channel in Calais. This is a remarkable debut from director DKhan, who handles the subject matter with a delicacy and tenderness that is testament to the quality of its writing and performances. It is brilliantly led by Scanlan, ably supported by Nathalie Richard and newcomer Talid Ariss.
