Storyline

Medusa's Ankles is an adaptation of Man Booker prize winning author A S Byatt's short story of the same title directed by Bonnie Wright. Filmed in London this January 2016 starring Kerry Fox, Jason Isaacs and Chanel Cresswell. Susannah (Fox), a middle-aged classics professor, is enticed into a hair salon by a Matisse print and finds an unexpected comfort in the hairdresser, Lucian (Isaacs). This relationship builds but takes a dramatic turn when the salon is remodeled and the atmosphere and characters entirely change. The story's plot proposes an illusory release through violence. Through its juxtapositions and patterns of imagery, the story addresses in the protagonist the inevitability of physical decay, the loss of a sense of identity with one's body.
