Morvern Callar (2002)

Lynne Ramsay’s second feature film is this brilliant adaptation of the Oban & Ibiza set novel by Scottish writer Alan Warner. Ramsay’s genius here is to approximate the strange and introverted atmosphere of the novel, that shows a world very specifically from the point of view of the emotionally scarred titular character.

Samantha Morton, who was still at an early stage of her career, turns in a mesmerising performance as a woman who seizes upon the selfish act of her lover’s suicide to find a path to her own liberation. You will never have seen a film quite like it. Deals with themes resulting from suicide and depression throughout.

Dir: Philippa Lowthorpe
