Academy Award nominee, Samantha Morton (Sweet and Lowdown, Minority Report) is the mysterious Morvern Callar. Waking up Christmas morning, Morvern is greeted with a startling surprise; her boyfriend has inexplicably committed suicide. He has left her a cryptic short message on his computer screen - "I love you. Be brave." He has also left her the manuscript for a new novel. Impulsively, Morvern changes the authors name to her own and sends the novel out to publishers. This then begins a rebirth of a character free for self discover. Mesmerizing in its look and propelled by an excitingly hip soundtrack (The Velvet Underground, Aphex Twin, Stereolab) and a fantastic performance by Morton, Morvern Callar is a truly original film by one of the maverick filmmakers on the vanguard of films today - Lynne Ramsay (Ratcatcher~~).
