Film Description

In her first major role, Samantha Morton plays Iris. Unable to cope with her mother's death and alienated from a happily-married sister, she ditches her job and her boyfriend, dons her wig and goes looking for love in all the wrong places. Carrying the movie along like an incendiary device, Iris has to be one of the most passionate heroines ever caught on film by a BFI grant.
