My Feral Heart

My Feral Heart (2016)

'A sudden bereavement throws Luke, a fiercely independent young man with Down’s syndrome, into a daunting new environment where he finds unexpected support from his feisty, streetwise carer and a local heir dealing with his own demons. As friendships bloom and long-buried secrets are revealed, Luke verges dangerously close to disaster. My Feral Heart is a beautifully realised, understated character study bolstered by strong performances, distinctive cinematography and a deeply evocative score.' (EIFF 2016 programme notes)

 

BIFA voters say:

"A brave and distinctive film with some moments of wonderful performance."
