SCAT EDINBURGH | ANCHOR & HOPE ( TIERRA FIRME)

ANCHOR & HOPE ( TIERRA FIRME)

CAMEO CINEMA

Saturday 17 November – 6pm

A smart, funny film about love and its discontents as a lesbian couple’s relationship is tested when a Catalan friend comes to visit them.

After his sleeper hit 10,000 KM, Carlos Marques-Marcet returns with a similarly bittersweet treatment of love and its vagaries. Eva (Oona Chaplin) and Kat (Natalia Tena) are a couple coming to terms with the death of their cat when Kat’s close friend Roger (David  Verdaguer) comes to stay. Space is tight on their London houseboat and Eva is not best pleased to have the gregarious, womanising Roger impinging on their space, but then she hits on a plan that will bind the three of them together and sets about executing it with a renewed sense of purpose. Anchor and Hope offers a fresh and funny rom-com.
