Pin Cushion. For a change I'd not read any reviews. Didn't even know it was British. All I knew was that it was about a relationship about a mother and daughter. I didn't know it would be an intensely bleak tragi-comedy / psychological thriller / dark social realist drama with fantastical overtures. A jaw droppingly intense study of the effects of loneliness and bullying. It was Carrie without the supernatural but with the girl with long red hair and strange mother. I was an emotional wreck at the end. 8.5 out of ten. Highly recommended.

The Synopsis for Pin Cushion (2017) 1080p
Super close Mother LYN and daughter IONA (Dafty One and Dafty Two) are excited for their new life in a new town. Determined to make a success of things after a tricky start, Iona becomes 'best friends' with KEELY, STACEY and CHELSEA. Used to being Iona's bestie herself, Lyn feels left out. So Lyn also makes friends with BELINDA, her neighbour. As much as Lyn and Iona pretend to each other that things are going great, things aren't going great for either of them. Iona struggles with the girls, who act more like frenemies than friends, and Belinda won't give Lyn her stepladders back. Both Mother and Daughter retreat into fantasy and lies.

A hidden gemReviewed bymichael-kerrigan-526-124974Vote: 8/10
ProsThe film was shot on a small budget through the dedication of the team. It was shot in the writers local community. I even recognized some of the places myself (although not the bus shelter). Some of the cinematography really sets the tone of the scenes and is a high point in my opinion. The overall story is the stand out of the film (however I did leave the cinema feeling almost like I'd read a very long book of the story).
ConsThe story seemed to lack clarity. The acting was adequate but (perhaps because of the character personalities) the dialog seemed sterile and unreal. For a gritty drama (as this should have been) it all seemed a little bit fake and unengaging to me.I think that with a compression of the story and a couple of good reworks of the script. The actors would have had something to get their teeth into. It seemed very long for the story that was told. In my opinion this would have then made a much better short film.
A true life fairy tale that explores what so many people experience, the odd couple in a new town wanting desperately to make friends and become accepted, but find themselves lured by the wicked side of those around them to do things they think they must do and the consequences that human beings can lead others into when they enjoy making them unhappy rather than choosing love and the unhappiness and and truths that this brings home. Remarkable debut for someone who had never directed on this scale before and a thought provoking movie everyone should see, especially parents and schoolchildren.
