Everybody Look at Me Written by Paul Buie
Directed by Darren Daly
So Lauren is a casualty of the banking collapse and no longer a high flyer – but there are other routes she can take through life – teaching, for example. Shaping young minds.
And there are worse things in life than moving back into the family home to regroup and start the ascent again.
But that’s the problem with being an ex-high flyer. Back at ground level, you’re so much closer to reality. Whether you like it or not.
Bones Written by Jane Upton
Directed by Esther Richardson
Nottingham, 1998. Nineteen-year-old Mark is living a life he never signed up to. Heavy with the responsibility of caring for his broken mum and her baby, and pining for a past of Panda Pops, eggy bread and Brian Clough, Mark knows he has to do something drastic to change things forever. But how far will he go?
An achingly honest portrayal of a boy struggling to find his place in a world that doesn’t want him, Bones will break your heart, spit you out and then make you question why you cared in the first place.
