Short Film Addicted

An award-winning debut short film shot on 16mm starring Charlotte Beaumont (Broadchurch), Amanda Drew (Eastenders) and Ed Birch (Life in Squares). Awarded the 'Best of the Fest' award by Mike Leigh at Greenhorn Film Festival 2015.

Struggling to cope in a remote coastal town with her dysfunctional family, Charity, a sixteen-year-old traveller, is forced to accept her estranged brother's return as he is released from prison.

"With a strong female lead, incredibly genuine script and carefully considered cinematography, this is a remarkable filmmaking debut by a young director we’ll be hearing a lot more about." - Greenhorn Film Festival

"Less is certainly more here. 'Charity' reeks of ingenuity, sincerity and above all else, faith in the power of great actors." - Watch This Space Film Magazine
