Unexpected middle-age love arises between odd couple in this life-affirming Clio Barnard-tinged feelgood gem that became the audience favourite at Cannes.

Ali and Ava come from different parts of town, different classes, and have different origins. He is a street-smart, funny, and unpredictable landlord who works extra as a DJ. She is a low-key, warm-hearted, thoroughly kind teacher's assistant. Their paths cross when Ali drives his tenants’ daughter to school where Ava works. Soon, feelings arise that neither could have foreseen. But heavy personal baggage and a judgmental environment create problems. Barnard (Arbor, GFF 2011; Selfish Giant, 2013) delivers English realism of absolute top class, spiced with irresistible humour and bubbling energy in this story (based on real people) about the importance of love, safety, trust, and – Bob Dylan.
