From award-winning British director Phyllida Lloyd (Mamma Mia!, The Iron Lady) comes the inspirational Irish drama, Herself .
Co-written by breakout star Clare Dunne, the film masterfully balances its explorations of bureaucracy, social and economic hardship and cycles of abuse against main character Sandra’s (Dunne) unshakeable persistence and optimism.
Sandra is a young Mum struggling to provide her two young daughters with a safe, happy home after leaving an abusive relationship. When it becomes clear the local Dublin council won’t provide them with a house, she decides to build one herself.
With very little income and a menacing ex-husband ready to strike at the smallest mistake, Sandra calls on the support of a new community of friends, including her employer Peggy (Harriet Walter), to help build their safe haven together.
Through their kindness and generosity and the love of her young daughters, Sandra finds the inner peace and strength to rebuild her sense of self.
