Synopsis

'Mad’ Mary, an emotionally volatile young woman in her early twenties is returning to her hometown after a short period in jail following a fight in a local nightclub. Back living with her mum and nan, her best childhood friend is about to get married and, despite being the maid of honour, it is clear that Mary is being cut out of her life, as the woman who was once her soulmate tries to distance herself from her and her problems. She sets about finding herself a date for the big day, and after a string of terrible dates with men develops a romantic bond with a woman hired to make the wedding video. Funny and frank, this is a poignant work about the drifting apart of childhood friends in the modern, social media saturated era.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
