A young woman by the name of Morvern Callar wakes up on Christmas Day to find that her boyfriend has committed suicide, leaving behind his newly finished novel. The film, based on the 1995 book of the same name by Alan Warner, tells the story of her rearranging her life in the days after.
Filmed and directed in the unique manner of Lynne Ramsay, one of the most talented directors working today. Interesting visual style and great performances. Samantha Morton plays the superb central role.
Lynne Ramsay’s second feature film, after a string of successful shorts and her acclaimed 1999 debut, Ratcatcher.
An eclectically collected soundtrack, featuring Can, The Velvet Underground, and Nancy Sinatra.
