This coming of age drama is set in London during the Cuban Missile Crisis. It’s told from the perspective of two lifelong best friends at the time when they dabble in activism and experiment as teens do. One friend makes a choice that leads to a drastic paradigm shift in the friendship, and ultimately causes an already uneasy home to shatter. The truth eats one up inside while keeping it a secret exacerbates things.
Elle Fannings performance was great, especially in a pivotal scene towards the end.
Very handsomely shot. Bright, vivid and colorful. Even has a couple split diopter shots at the tail end of the runtime.
Stupid trivia: Both mother and daughter have been directed by Nicolas Winding…
