How About You

A FILM BY Anthony Byrne

Redgrave and Ackland bring a certain gravitas to this audience-pleaser.
-Sheri Linden, The Hollywood Reporter
The film has structure, resonance and a welcome respect for well-delineated characters, beautifully observed by a distinguished cast.
-Rex Reed, New York Observer


HOW ABOUT YOU tells the story of Ellie, a young woman left in charge of the residential home run by her older sister, over the Christmas period. Whilst most of the residents have left to spend the festive period with their families, four residents, known as 'the hardcore' remain. Their behavior is so terrible that the home faces closure as potential new residents are put off by their appalling antics.
