BFI LFF 2018 Official Selection
Peter Bradshaw's picks of the London film festival
"Award-winning actor and comedian Jessica Hynes has come up with something startling and intriguing. She directs and stars in this drama about a woman with many concerns in her busy life, so decides to hit back at life’s worries – by getting into boxing."

Tina lives in a quiet seaside town but her life is anything but quiet - her mother is threatening to leave her father, her daughter is being bullied and she and her husband Mick are juggling full time jobs and three children. Determined to ditch the dysfunction and beat her inner demons, Tina puts on her fighting gloves - literally, stepping into the boxing ring to sweat out her anxieties and punch up her self-worth. But does she have what it takes to get her family off the ropes and emerge victorious?

Bio

I’m originally from Lancashire & for the last 2 decades I’ve been living in Wales. I started shooting documentaries & I was double nominated for American Interior & Ivor Gurney & won a BAFTA Cymru for the latter. Moving onto feature films, I shot Prevenge (dir: Alice Lowe) & Black Mountain Poets (dir: Jamie Adams) & last year I shot The Fight (dir: Jessica Hynes), one of Peter Bradshaw’s picks of the BFI London Film Festival.

Since then I’ve shot the feature films Bittersweet Symphony (dir: Jamie Adams), Good Posture (dir: Dolly Wells), Love Spreads (dir: Jamie Adams), A Winter Love (dir: Rhiana Yazzie) & Balance, Not Symmetry (dir: Jamie Adams), as well as short films The Super Recogniser (dir: Jen Sheridan), The 11th (dir: Naomi Waring) & Susan Wokoma’s Love the Sinner (dir: Jen Sheridan). I’m currently shooting Merched Parchus / Respectable Girls, a series in Cardiff.

I’m naturally drawn to handheld, intimate & lyrical films & I’m inspired by the work of Lynne Ramsay, Andrea Arnold, Kelly Reichardt, Derek Cianfrance, Robbie Ryan, Bradford Young, Sebastião Salgado & Anton Corbijn. If you think we’d be a good fit, please contact me & I’ll send you my private showreel. Or contact Gems Agency on 02920 710770 to book me.
