Synopsis

When couple D and H, both artists, decide to sell the home they have loved and lived in for two decades, they begin a process of saying goodbye to their shared history under the same roof. The upheaval causes anxieties, memories, fears and dreams to surface.

Our take

A penetrating, impossibly elegant exploration not only of a marriage among artists but also of how your home shapes your life. James Melvin’s glass-shrouded London house is as much a character as the couple inside it—no less than The Slits’ guitarist Viv Albertine and conceptual artist Liam Gillick!

Exhibition Directed by Joanna Hogg
Exhibition is exquisitely made, slightly chilly, and one of the most interesting British films in recent years.
