Liverpool Mental Health Consortium presents Liverpool Mental Health Festival 2018 Film Night.
Main feature: Adult Life Skills (2016).
Anna is stuck: she’s approaching 30, living like a hermit in her mum’s garden shed and wondering why the suffragettes ever bothered. She spends her days making short films with her endlessly bickering thumbs.
However, when her school friend comes to visit, Anna’s self-imposed isolation becomes impossible to maintain. Soon she is entangled with a troubled 8-year-old boy obsessed with Westerns, and the local estate agent whose awkward interpersonal skills continually undermine his attempts to seduce her.
Directed by Rachel Tunnard, and starring Jodie Whittaker (One Day, Broadchurch, Dr Who), Alice Lowe (Prevenge, Sightseers), and Brett Goldstein (ITV’s Uncle, Drifters), Adult Life Skills is a distinctly eccentric, witty and moving British triumph.
