"Cats, hats and doormats are all that Roberta needs to be happy... but is happiness enough?"
Roberta Allen, with her silver moon boots, is a familiar figure in the streets of Norwich. Living alone with her ever-growing collections and only her beloved Marbles for company, old age is finally taking its toll. Poor vision, memory loss and a vivid imagination offer Roberta a rich kaleidoscope of experiences. The discovery of a winning lottery ticket changes Roberta's life forever... but is it for better or worse?
With sensitivity and flashes of humour, this film addresses some of the issues facing the elderly in the UK today.
Marbles is my graduation film for my BA Film and Moving Image Production at Norwich University of the Arts.
