Seven years after the death of her daughter, Lizzie locks eyes on a sight she thought she’d never see again: a girl, Lola, who is the spitting image of her own lost child. As she battles for custody of her surviving son, Lizzie’s obsession with Lola only grows – befriending the young girl’s mother, following her everywhere and forcing long-held secrets out into the open.

Adapted from the 2008 French movie L’Empreinte, Farrant’s complex and compelling sophomore film once again examines the themes of motherhood and grief that resonated so strongly in Strangerland.

“Takes what could have been a simple stalker movie premise and fills it out with an intense array of emotions.” – The Guardian

“More than a little unsettling, but real.” – Filmink

“Serves up psychological thrills while presenting a stereotypical portrait of a fraying woman, then subverting it by unpacking the substantial reasons for her seeming instability.” – Screen International
