2 Episodes

Two women search for human connection in sunnier climes in these quietly revelatory tales of summertime ennui and self-discovery. Heralding the arrival of one of the most distinctive voices in contemporary British cinema, Joanna Hogg’s feature debut UNRELATED follows a discontented middle-aged woman as she leaves her husband behind for a trip to Italy where hedonism and melancholy mingle in sun-dappled Tuscany. With their blend of light-filled naturalism and casually profound insights into the human condition, the films of Eric Rohmer have been cited by Hogg as a key influence, and his masterpiece THE GREEN RAY concerns a similarly adrift young woman attempting to restart her life during a transformative solo holiday on the coast of France.
