The Hollywood Effect

The Hollywood Effect. Movies present a version of 'normal' life we think we ought to conform to. They gloss over life, giving us an ideal we believe attainable. Realise this 'normal' and 'ideal' life are in fact jargon, we are free. Free to live. To be ourselves.

Thaw is a charming comedy-drama and the writing debut of experienced director Louis Catliff. Thaw follows Laura at two stages in her life. We see young Laura having to say goodbye to her childhood best friend Evelyn, and, in the present day, Laura in an old-folks home suffering with the early stages of dementia as her son Henry struggles to care for her. In a tale of friendship, music, nostalgia and prune sandwiches, Thaw explores the transitionary stages of life and offers both heartbreak and humour abounds.
