Outside of Birmingham, Ray and Liz raise their two sons living on the margins of society, performing extreme rituals and breaking social taboos as they deal with issues beyond their control. Turner Prize-nominated artist Ray Billingham returns to the striking photographs of his family during Thatcher-era Britain in this BIFA-winning film based on his memories of growing up in a Black Country council flat.
“Bracing honesty and lacerating tenderness, all chased with a teacup shot of treacle black humour. A very special film, perhaps the best to come out of the UK in many years.” – Little White Lies
