Life Just Is
Paul Nicholls, Jayne Wisener, Will De Meo, Jack Gordon, Nathaniel Martello-White, Fiona Ryan / Fiction / English
Love, death and the meaning of life figure among the preoccupations of a group of uni graduates in London. In his debut feature, Alex Barrett observes his characters with humour, sympathy and insight, creating a fresh and funny portrait of people who are desperate to leave adolescence behind but hesitant about fully committing to adulthood. “It is tempting to describe Life Just Is as one of the most promising debuts in contemporary cinema, but this temptation should be resisted. We are not dealing with promise here: we are dealing with achievement” (Brad Stevens, film critic).
