Apostasy (2017) - Unseen in 2018 Season

Apostasy Still 1.jpg

In Deptford CInema’s ‘Unseen in 2018’ strand, we bring to you the cream of the crop of those films released last year that we feel deserved a bigger audience. The chosen films come from a variety of filmmakers and genres, but all display a unique vision.

Writer-Director Daniel Kokotajlo’s intense debut film about a crisis of faith among three Manchester-based British Jehovah’s comes direct from personal experience: the director was once a member of the church himself. Stars Molly Wright, Sacha Parkinson and Siobhan Finneran give arresting performances as a pair of young daughters and their watchful single mother respectively, all of whom find their relationship rocked to the core when pregnancy, life-threatening illnesses and unforgiving church dictates cause doubts about their religion to start creeping in…

"Daniel Kokotajlo’s debut about life among a religious community in Oldham is authentic, sensitive and subtle but has a sledgehammer narrative punch” - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, ★★★★☆
