Last Resort

A Russian woman and her son journey to England to meet her fiance. When he doesn't turn up, they become asylum-seekers in a tatty out-of-season Kentish resort. Then she meets Alfie... An atmospheric and poignant little film which calls into question the very ideology which underpins immigration laws. One of the freshest British films in years. "...this is the best class of poetic realism, the kind you can believe in without a trace of hesitation." - LA Times. "...the film was getting the kind of reviews American indie directors would sell their Latino maids into slavery for." - The Guardian.
