Lucy Jacobs is a small-town girl who has started her freshman year at a big-city university. When Lucy returns home for Thanksgiving break, she suspects she is about to get turkey dropped: dumped by her high school sweetheart.
A Jewish girl Esther is forced to conceal her identity as a boy on a Nazi-Norwegian farm. Plotting her escape to Sweden, her daily challenge to keep her true identity a secret, leads to a series of choices and consequences.
A funny and irresistible story of a young girl who literally cannot see or hear her mother, even though she is living with her under the same roof. With the help of an eccentric psychiatrist, and a local, accidental hero, our heroine has to grow up, but falls in love and eventually takes hold of her future - despite not being able to see what's right in front of her.
We've been waiting a long time for this film to come to us. First it was called "Look Away"..in 2015. Then it was changed to Beautiful Darkness. We waited in anticipation for 3-4 years for this to move through post production, to find a distributor and to get a release date. We poured over unofficial trailers. And still most of the world outside the UK is waiting to see it....Personally, I was not disappointed. I was waiting up at midnight on the 25/3/19 in the UK to see it. The best of indie style film making with glorious cinematography. In essence a good old fashioned love story around the premise of falling in love with someone who you can't see. Except the Princess is a Prince in Aidan Turner, destined never to be seen by his true love and each character is marooned in a lake of their own self made loneliness and isolation. But throughout there is hope, the idea of altered perception in each and everyone of us... where we only choose to see what we want to see....and the very real dilemma of being careful for what you wish for.....Finally, we all need a tree house just like that one.... It's a real gem of a film ... made out of human foibles, weaknesses, hidden strengths and belief in others.... Special shout-outs to a recreation of Buster Keaton and to Ferris Bueller in a head bandage. Here's to all that is Dark in All of Us.
