The Receptionist

Scroll down

Unable to find a job, Tina, a Taiwanese recent graduate living in London, starts working in an illegal massage parlour as a receptionist. As she gradually comes to know the women in this most dysfunctional of artificial families, where sex lies at the core of everything, she sees how they struggle to find a way to make their lives work, with an undercurrent of violence and danger always lurking.


Followed by a Q&A with the director Jenny Lu and actress Sophie Gopsill, hosted by Robin Osmani.
