Dir. Pawel Pawlikowski. 2004, 86 mins. 35mm. With Natalie Press, Emily Blunt, Paddy Considine. Emily Blunt, in her film debut, plays Tamsin, an upper middle class woman who, recently suspended from boarding school, begins a tentative relationship with Mona (Press), a tough working class girl whose only family is her brother Phil, fresh out of prison and newly a born-again Christian. Shrewdly observing the English class system as perhaps an emigre is best equipped to do, Pawlikowski offers a passionate and sometimes painful portrayal of two girls in love, negotiating a minefield of personal problems and social pressures.
