A Way Of Life
Independent Films, Film Profiles
Sympathy comes hard in working-class South Wales, where an unmarried teen mother faces every new day as though it were a battlefield— struggling to take care of her infant while lashing out at the community that wants to forget her. Amma Asante’s gritty, clear-eyed film—a standout at the Toronto and San Sebastián film festivals—examines the nature of sacrifice and the forces of intolerance.
