My Feral Heart
Steven Brandon, Pixie Le Knot, Shana Swash, Will Rastall, Eileen Pollock, Suzanna Hamilton / Fiction / English
A warm-hearted yet hard-hitting tale of tragedy, honesty and the power of unforeseen friendships.
A sudden bereavement throws Luke, a fiercely independent young man with Down’s syndrome, into a daunting new environment where he finds unexpected support from his feisty, streetwise carer and a local heir dealing with his own demons. As friendships bloom and long-buried secrets are revealed, Luke verges dangerously close to disaster. My Feral Heart is a beautifully realised, understated character study bolstered by strong performances, distinctive cinematography and a deeply evocative score. [U]
