PRINCE CHARLES DISCOVERY 1 - SATURDAY 24 AUGUST
A SERIAL KILLER'S GUIDE TO LIFE
Director: Staten Cousins-Roe. With: Katie Brayben, Poppy Roe, Sinead Matthews, Ben Lloyd-Hughes. UK 2019. 81 mins.
NEW BLOOD - WORLD PREMIERE - Think THELMA AND LOUISE meets SIGHTSEERS as directed by Mike Leigh to get a handle on Staten Cousins-Roe’s gem of a feature debut. Thirty-something, self-help addict, Lou Farnt wants nothing more than to escape her overly controlling mother and the dead-end seaside town where she grew up. When strange and strikingly confident new life coach Val invites her on a road trip of alternative therapies, culminating with a visit to American self-help idol Chuck Knoah's British country home, Lou finds the perfect opportunity to leave - and the perfect person to become. Unfortunately for Lou though, Val is a serial killer.
