Adult Life Skills, 2016 - ★★★★

I hesitate to use the word ‘quirky’ to describe this film, because that often suggests a certain amount of twee-ness. This film isn’t twee, but it is definitely quirky. Our heroine is still living in her mother’s garden shed at the age of 30, unable to move on after the death of her brother. She makes home-made films using her thumbs as characters, which is funnier than you would imagine.

I loved the characters, and found their problems believable and engaging, and there are some very moving moments among the profane and funny ones.
