This powerful, hard-hitting drama has been winning plaudits and prizes galore since it debuted at the Sundance Film Festival last year, and rightly so. Its star, Clare Dunne, co-wrote the screenplay in between acting jobs, and draws on the housing crisis that's plagued her native Ireland and the UK. She plays hard-working mother of two Sandra, who after finding herself unfairly thwarted by the system, takes matters into her own hands and begins to build her family a home herself – from scratch. The subject is tenderly handled by British director Phyllida Lloyd (The Iron Lady, Mama Mia!) with the help of an impressive supporting cast. This is a thoughtful, important film that doesn't shy away from the tough realities Sandra and her children face, yet offers a universal message of hope and redemption.
